Kaduna Assembly: El-Rufai’s govt siphoned over N400bn

Kaduna State House of Assembly on Wednesday indicted the administration of former Governor Nasir El-Rufai of siphoning over N400 billion of the state resources.

El-Rufai is yet to react to the allegation.

The house also asked the incumbent Governor Uba Sani to refer the former Governor and those indicted among them Commissioners of Finance, head agencies and Accountant Generals to relevant security agencies for further investigation.

Presenting the report during a plenary sitting, Chairman of the ad hoc committee and Deputy Speaker of the House, Henry Magaji Danjuma, said most of the loans obtained under the El-Rufai’s administration were not used for the purpose for which they were obtained.

According to him, in some cases, due process was not followed in securing both domestic and foreign loans.

The committee, therefore, recommended the investigation and prosecution of El-Rufai, some other indicted members of his cabinet by security and anti-corruption agencies for abuse of office through the award of contracts without due process, diversion of public funds and money laundering.
