Kaduna State House of Assembly has set up fact-finding committee to probe all finances, loans and contract projects awarded under the former Governor Nasiru El-Rufai‘s administration.

The committee to conduct the probe was set up at the plenary on Tuesday, April 16, presided by the Speaker, Yusuf Liman Dahiru.

The Committee was tasked to embark “on fact-finding of financial dealings, loans and grants and other projects implementation from 2015-2023.”

The state Assembly also mandated the committee to invite El-Rufai and other notable personalities, including the former speaker of the 8th and 9th Assembly. Others to be invited are former commissioners of finance and ex-commissioners of budget and planning.

Governor of Kaduna State Uba Sani had lamented the huge debt burden left by the past administration which he claimed was incapacitating his government.

Sani had said the state was left with a few amounts, not enough to pay salary, adding that his administration inherited a total of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the ex-governor.
