The Kaduna State House of Assembly has made a shocking discovery, uncovering alleged financial irregularities totaling N423 billion during former Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s tenure. An ad hoc committee established in April presented its findings, revealing widespread misappropriation of funds and contract violations between 2015 and 2023.

The committee’s report details extensive financial misconduct, including unauthorized cash withdrawals, reckless contract awards, and abandoned projects despite substantial payments. It also alleges complicity between El-Rufai and his officials, leading to unnecessary and fraudulent debts.

The Assembly has called on current Governor Uba Sani to refer El-Rufai and his aides to security agencies for further investigation. Governor Sani had previously expressed concerns about the financial state he inherited, including a massive debt burden and inability to pay workers’ salaries.

El-Rufai’s media aide, Muyiwa Adekeye, has dismissed the report as politically motivated and false. However, the Assembly’s recommendations are clear: recover over N36 billion from contractors, investigate individuals and companies involved in dubious transactions, and ensure accountability for the state’s resources.

This unfolding drama highlights the need for transparency and accountability in governance. The Assembly’s findings, if acted upon, could set a precedent for good governance in Kaduna State. As the situation unfolds, the public awaits Governor Sani’s next steps in addressing the alleged financial mismanagement
