Human Rights activist, Shehu Sani has pointed out that Kaduna State was plundered by fraudulent technocrats, thieving consultants and contractors while commending the Kaduna House of Assembly adhoc Committee for their due diligence.

The ad-hoc committee had on Wednesday presented their report on the investigation of finances, and loans made by the former Governor Nasir El-Rufai stating that the present administration siphoned N423 billion and recommended an investigation and prosecution of El-Rufai, 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 as well as plaguing Kaduna State into heavy debt.

Sani, who has always been at loggerheads with Mr El-Rufai over the financial mismanagement of the State funds advised the Assembly to ensure that the stolen money was recovered.

“The Kaduna Assembly has done a good job. I wish to congratulate them. The next step is to ensure the recovery of our stolen money from those leeches and vultures. Kaduna state was simply plundered by fraudulent technocrats, thieving consultants and contractors domiciled in Sir Kashim Ibrahim House.

“For anyone who cared to go through that published report, I don’t know what “serving with integrity means”. Kaduna was a victim of two types of Banditry;the one in our forests and the one in the Government house. They left behind estates and malls for their children and left behind a mountain of debt for the children of the poor.”

The former Senator representing Kaduna Central stated that the El-Rufai administration wrecked the economy of the State and enriched themselves and their cronies to the detriment of millions of people.

“For eight years,I stood alone telling the people of Kaduna State and the country how our state was systematically looted by the Governor and the criminal gang around him.The People inside and outside the state were deceived with aesthetics and industrial scale propaganda.They wrecked the economy of the state,enriched themselves and their families,destroyed the lives and livelihoods of millions of people and used religion to divide our state.

“I was persecuted and many attempts were made on my life and that of my supporters.Many politicians in the state were silenced out of fear of arrest,attacks by thugs or having their properties confiscated or demolished.I refused to be silenced.
The Kaduna Assembly report is a vindication.”

Recall that Governor Uba Sani had stated that the previous administration left high debt for the State and so, he was unable to pay salaries of workers. This led the State Assembly to set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate the finances and loans of the El-Rufai administration.
