Shehu Sani slams El-Rufai’s commissioners for criticising fraud report

Civil rights activist and former lawmaker, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has condemned commissioners under former Governor Nasir El-Rufai who criticised the recent report of the State House of Assembly on fraud and financial scandals involving the ex-governor.

Sani described the commissioners as co-accomplices of El-Rufai who allegedly looted the treasury of Kaduna State and plunged the state into huge debts.

“The people of Kaduna State and the country as a whole should ignore the so-called statement issued by the commissioners of the immediate past administration of Kaduna State,” the lawmaker said in a statement at the weekend.

“The investigation conducted by the Kaduna State House of Assembly is unbiased, comprehensive, and evidently backed by facts and figures.

“It’s sad and unfortunate that people who financially ruined, strangled, and incapacitated the state for eight years still have the shameless boldness to disparage an impartial probe that exposed the systemic thievery and open heist that became the art and science of governance in Kaduna State.”

Sani added, “Never in the history of Kaduna State or any state in Northern Nigeria has there ever been such a clinical and forensic probe of scandalous, unbridled, gargantuan scale corruption. The report speaks for itself in clarity and substance. They should be ashamed of themselves.

“They plundered our resources, enriched themselves, and suffocated the economy of our state with debt that will take generations to service. Many of them were struggling to live before 2015, and today they live large from the collective resources of the people of Kaduna State.

“I challenge all of them to make public the contents of the Code of Conduct forms they filled in 2015 and the ones they filled in 2023. For eight years, Kaduna was a haven for opacity, official larceny, financial thuggery, and fiscal banditry by fraudulent contractors, thieving consultants, and parasites in the Government House. People who cannot even be councillors in their states of origin came to Kaduna and looted the resources of our people.

“People who should be returning the money they stole and seeking forgiveness are today striving hard to smear an investigation that casts light on their actions.”

Senator Sani continued, “They ruined the economy and lives of millions of our people. They amassed wealth for themselves. Any attempt to jettison the KSHA report can lead to the breakdown of law and order in the state. They must be brought to book. If anyone has ever given me any contract in Kaduna State of even ONE NAIRA from 1999 to date, they should come forward.

“Kaduna lawmakers must stand courageously firm and never bend in the face of any intimidation or cowardly threats by the beneficiaries of that looting regime. A toilet paper stained with the faeces of a full-grown adult is more useful than their piece of trash.”
