Go and face, anti-corruption agencies, Kaduna Assembly replies El-Rufai’s ex-commissioners

The Kaduna State House of Assembly has urged former political appointees of Malam Nasir El-Rufai to prepare their defences for anti-corruption agencies and the courts, particularly those implicated in the assembly’s report.

Barrister Henry Magaji, Chairman of the Fact-Finding Committee and Deputy Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, said in a statement on Wednesday in response to a recent press conference by El-Rufai’s ex-commissioners that the press conference was a rehash of baseless accusations and failed to address the core issue of the massive looting of state resources.

He explained that the assembly’s investigation revealed poorly executed, abandoned, and imaginary projects disguised as legitimate ones.

“We urge the former political appointees to prepare their defences for the anti-corruption agencies and the courts. The House of Assembly is not in a battle of wits with them; we have fulfilled our duty to the people of Kaduna State,” the statement said.

Magaji emphasised that the assembly is distancing itself from the malfeasance of the previous administration. He clarified that the probe, conducted in line with their constitutional mandate and in response to public demand, aimed to uncover the truth and ensure accountability.
