El-Rufai: ‘They left behind estates, malls for their children but debt for poor masses’ – Shehu Sani

Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has alleged that the past government under Nasir El-Rufai, left behind estates and malls for their children, while leaving behind a mountain of debt for the children of the poor in Kaduna State.


The statement comes amid the adoption of a report by an ad-hoc committee of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, demanding to probe his governance of the state from May 2015 to May 2023.


According to the report, most of the loans obtained under the El-Rufai’s administration were not used for the purpose for which they were obtained, while in some cases, due process was not followed in securing the loans.


But the former governor responded insisting he led a government of integrity and competence during his eight-year administration.


El-Rufai said the report was a “politically motivated hatchet job”, insisting he served with integrity.


However, Sani, in a post on his X handle on Thursday, said he did not know what “serving with integrity means”.


He suggested that the next step is to ensure the recovery of the stolen money from the leeches and vultures.


“‘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,” Sani said.
