WorldStage Newsonline-- The Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) on Monday faulted the nomination of former Bauchi State Governor, Adamu Muazu as the Chairman of the Nigerian Pension Commission (PENCOM).

In a statement signed by TMG National Coordinator, Comrade Ibrahim Zikirullahi it said that it was astonished and peeved by this move of the President, especially in the light of the fact that the former Governor is yet to be cleared by the Economics and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

It said to have defrauded Bauchi State to the tune of N19.8 billion when he was Governor of the State, "this and other similar acts of Mr. President, particularly his penchant for surrounding himself with famed corrupt individuals makes his government’s so-called anti-corruption efforts a laughing stock, for it is patently obvious from his antecedents that President Jonathan endorses corruption"
