Kure is not alone in the rain of bans as others who served in his administration were caught in the dragnet. The former Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party for the North Central Zone, Alhaji Abubakar Magaji, the former Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General in the state, Alhaji Umar Kawu are affected.

Others include a gubernatorial aspirant and former Permanent Secretary of the State’s Ministry Of Local Government And Chieftaincy Affairs, Alhaji Alhassan Jibrin Bala, and a former director in the ministry, Alhaji Mohammed Katuka. It would be recalled that the Justice Maiyaki led Judiciary Commission of Inquiry was inaugurated by Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu following reports of non execution of contracts and other financially related irregularities alleged to have been committed by the past Kure administration.

Contained in the white paper report made available to Weekly Trust on Friday, Kure was indicted in the supply of 200metric tones of iron rod, and ordered that Kure should account for 99m, adding that he should also be banned ten years from holding public office as part of punishment.

The former governor was also indicted in the supply of ductile iron pipe fittings and water pumps to Lapai Agaie, Katcha, Kontagora, New Bussa, Lambata, Mokwa and Gawu Babangida by BEEDASH Nigeria Limited.
