This comes after the house received a report from its committee investigating funds, loans, and contracts awarded during the tenure of Nasir El-Rufai, which found that most loans were not used for their purpose and due process was not followed in some.

The committee’s report also revealed that the El-Rufai government took a total of N423 billion, leaving the state with significant liabilities.

According to Punch, the committee recommends that El-Rufai and other indicted members of his cabinet be investigated and prosecuted by security and anti-corruption agencies for abuse of office, contract fraud, diversion of public funds, money laundering, and plunging Kaduna State into deep debt.

The committee also recommends suspending Kaduna State Commissioner of Finance Shizer Badda, who served under El-Rufai’s government, and the head of the state universal basic education board, and calls for a comprehensive inquiry into several key appointments made by the previous government by competent law enforcement and anti-corruption authorities.
