Attempt At Reputation Damage - Ex-Kaduna Commissioners Condemn El-Rufai’s Probe by naptu2: 4:01am On Jul 10
Former cabinet members in the administration of Nasir el-Rufai, the ex-governor of Kaduna, have reacted to the probe of their principal by the state house of assembly.

In a statement on Tuesday, eight former commissioners under the el-Rufai administration described the probe as an “attempt to inflict maximum reputational damage on certain selected members of the Kaduna State Executive Council, Class of 2015-2023”.

On March 30, Uba Sani, the incumbent governor of Kaduna, said his administration inherited a debt of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the el-Rufai administration.

He said the huge debt burden is eating deep into the state’s share of the monthly federation allocation.

Subsequently, the state’s assembly set up a committee to probe the finances of Kaduna under the former administration.

On June 5, the Kaduna assembly recommended the probe of el-Rufai over the allegation of public funds diversion and money laundering.

The assembly made the recommendation after a report by the ad hoc committee.

However, the former cabinet members said the committee’s report “oozes malice and patent unfairness” toward the administration of the former governor.

The former cabinet members include Jafaru Sani, commissioner for education; Hafsat Baba, commissioner for human services and social development; Thomas Gyang, commissioner for public works and infrastructure, planning, and budget; Bashir Saidu, commissioner for finance; Ibrahim Husaini, commissioner for agriculture and environment; Aisha Dikko, commissioner for justice; Fausat Ibikunle, commissioner for housing and urban development; and Idris Nyam, former commissioner for business, innovation, and technology.

They said there is a dissonance between the recommendations of the assembly and the testimonies of the ad-hoc committee.

The ex-cabinet members also faulted discrepancies in the figures mentioned in the ad committee’s report, adding that “scrutiny of the report easily shows that the ad-hoc committee is inconsistent.”

“Why would the House of Assembly be unable to officially release the report to persons who were summoned by its ad-hoc committee, which took their testimonies and then proceeded to write baseless recommendations?” the statement reads.

“As senior officials in the El-Rufai Administration, which served the people of Kaduna State between May 2015 and May 2023, we restate our pride in the dedication and integrity of our service.

“We have previously described the report circulating on social media as an unprofessional document, tainted by bias, exhibiting no serious interest in establishing facts.

“It is apparent that the report is riddled with inaccuracies and instances of falsification and misrepresentation of the testimonies provided by invited officials.

“There is a dissonance between its recommendations and the testimonies the ad-hoc committee heard.

“It bears restating that its conclusions seem to have been decided beforehand and were insulated from the facts.”

Bashir El-Rufai @BashirElRufai

Wallahi, these compound fools have started something they can't finish. Whoever their backers are, wherever they are from, we are ready & this is only just the beginning. Every single allegation shall be debunked & every single bastard must prove how Mallam @elrufai stole 423BN.

Mal. Abba Kyaude @abba_kyaude

I can imagine your pain, but there's no harm in explaining. He should also come forward with details on how our resources were spent.

Bashir El-Rufai @BashirElRufai

And that's what he's doing.

Investigation Kwamatee: Elrufa’i mismanaged 423bn. We have evidence.

Media: We knew it. That man is evil. Now he should go and clear himself in court.

Elrufa’i: Waits small for EFCC or Court to call him but them no get recharge card. And Kwamatee too don enter voice mail😆

Elrufa’i: Now went to court to make things easier for kwamatee to prove their claim.

Kwamatee: We are not prepared. Our documents are not ready. We are still spiral binding the investigation report🥴

Elrufai is begging to be probed but the headline probers are now begging for time to arrange the media probe they were making.
Kaduna today has better infrastructure under it's belt ahead of Kano.
the same Kaduna Elrufai made to be state self sufficient on igr.
despite all the noises and allegations, 21 states ranks higher than Kaduna in terms of domestic and foreign debt.

some of you despite educated are so poor in analysis and reading.
what's the point of your education if you can't analyze basic stuffs.

My problem with a certain beneficiaries is how they swiftly try to twist narratives to cover up for their masters.....


Elrufai is a mistake for a governor.... He wasn't supposed to handle power in the first place.

He used his grace as the minister of FCT to become a governor....

He performed very well as a minister but performed absolutely rubbish as a governor......

Nobody is trying to dent his reputation.... Elrufai dented his reputation by himself... And his long neck son assisted him to a total destruction..mm

El-Rufai unleashed war on Senator Shehu Sani when he went against the approval of the World Bank loan application and later used Senator Uba Sani to secure its approval as a serving senators then.El-Rufai fought tooth and nail to impose Uba on Kaduna State in order to cover up his tracks but the same weeping baby who El-Rufai savaged and pacified by all means when he was about losing the governship election in 2023 is the one at loggerheads with his political godfather today.There's no permanent friend or enemy in politics but personal interest.

Go and find out what?
funny enough your the one who hasn't been to Kaduna.
majority of those projects were completed by Elrufai.
govt is a going concern and Uba Sani project so far is finishing what Elrufai started. it's what he's bragging with.
despite the massive debt from Elrufai, 21 states still ranks above him in debt profile including Kano, but Abba gidda is yet to probe ganduje on that.
and yet despite many states owing more than Elrufai, only Lagos and portharcourt could stand shoulder to shoulder for the past 4 years in terms of project completed with Kaduna state.

They were probing Elrufai on media, today Elrufai is in court and they can't provide evidence.

I don't think you read the news, they've been probing him and making baseless accusations on him.
today he's in court they can't prove anything and they are asking for time.
probably to go reconsider their stance and shamelessly beg.

He took loans on behalf of Kaduna state but used it to develop only Kaduna North and Kaduna Central, leaving Kaduna South to its fate. Hell Rufai was wicked and very unfair to Kaduna South but God is the judge of all.
