I Did Not Mismanage Kaduna Treasury – El-Rufai

By Abdullahi Ahmad Bamalli

Kaduna Governor Malam Nasiru El-Rufai said he did not mismanage Kaduna’s treasury to buy a house in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as other governors have done.

He explained that when he assumed office as the governor of Kaduna state, he had a house in Unguwan Sarki and that is the only house he currently has.

On a Kaduna State Media Corporation (KSMC) in a Hausa broadcast, the governor threatened to expose the state’s former governors, who is said to have left a huge hole in the state’s financial account.

He warned if they continued making false allegations against him he would have no choice but to tell the world how they mismanaged the development funds of the state and took some of them to the United Arab Emirates and other capitals of Europe and the United States where they allegedly purchased properties.

According to him, “One of the former governors was allegedly complicit in a missing N500 million contract to reconstruct the popular Waff Road, as nothing was done on the road until I came as governor and turned the road into a dual carriageway. They looted the money, and now the person they gave the Waff Road contract is dead.”

“I challenge anybody who has knowledge of our government collecting 10 per cent commission from contractors, but these people were collecting that commission. I am a Quantity Surveyor, I know the quality of work they have done.”
