El-Rufai accuses predecessors of building houses with public funds


KADUNA State governor Nasir El-Rufai has accused some of his predecessors of stealing state resources to build houses in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and other places.

El-Rufai made the allegation during a valedictory media chat on Sunday, May 21, on the Hausa service KSMC, a state-owned radio.

He challenged past governors of the state to face the people and swear with the Holy Qur’an that they never stole from government coffers.

El-Rufai claimed he did not steal a dime from the state’s treasury.

“I can swear I never stole a kobo from the government coffers.”

The governor, in the same vein, gave his administration a pass mark in infrastructural development.

“The work we have started and the quality of the works, we are going to spend years enjoying them. It is not the type of roads they did in the past that, after two rainy seasons, the roads will spoil. These works we are doing, we are doing them with quality.

“I am happy with what I have seen, but there is still more to be done, because to us, we want people to enter Kaduna and see no untarred road anywhere.

“That was our wish, but due to the difficult circumstance our government met, we couldn’t do everything we planned to do, until we had to borrow before we could do what we did.”
