The Kaduna State House of Assembly on Wednesday recommended the probe of the immediate-past governor of the state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, over alleged abuse of office and money laundering in his administration.

The chairman of the ad hoc committee, Henry Zacharia, presented the report during plenary on Wednesday.

Osun Defender reports that the committee, tasked with investigating loans, grants, and project implementation from 2015 to 2023, revealed that most loans obtained during El-Rufai’s administration were not used for their intended purposes.

Due process, according to the Committee, was not followed in securing some of these loans.

 

According to the report submitted by Zacharia on Wednesday, most of the loans obtained under el-Rufai’s administration were not used for their intended purpose, and in some cases, due process was not followed in securing the loans.

The committee, therefore, recommended the investigation and prosecution of the ex-governor and some other indicted members of his cabinet by security and anti-corruption agencies for abuse of office through the award of contracts without due process, diversion of public funds, and money laundering.
