Members of the Kaduna State Executive Council during former governor Nasir El-rufai led administration have said that no money was siphoned out of the coffers of the state government during the 8 years tenure of the immediate past governor.

In a statement jointly signed by former commissioners of finance, planning and budget, human service and social development, alongside environment they swiftly debunked a report issued by the members of the state house of assembly accusing the immediate past administration of money laundering.

According to the statement, the former executive members described the report as ” a planned, greasy poorly hatched and incompetently executed effort to damage their individual records and reputations” along with that of their principal which they described him as the most capable and dedicated public servants in Nigeria.

The Kaduna State House of Assembly members had on June 5 published a document titled “Report of  Ad-hoc Committee on Loans, Financial Transactions, Contractual Liabilities and Other Related Matters of the Government of Kaduna State from 29th May 2015 to 29th May 2023”. 

However, the documents which was widely published on several social media platforms accused the immediate past administration of massive corruption, money laundering amongst others.

Thus, the former commissioners in a statement Friday described the report as “outcome of a process motivated by malice and conducted with patent unfairness.”

“We affirm the integrity of the Administration in which we served the people of  Kaduna State between May 2015 and May 2023 under the leadership of Malam  Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai. In eight years, this Administration in which we were greatly  privileged to serve impacted Kaduna State with innovations that accelerated the  modernisation of the State, prioritised human capital development, expanded its infrastructure, improved its business standing, promoted equality of opportunity.”

“During Malam El-Rufai’s tenure, his Administration, in spite of our State’s public safety challenges, was undoubtedly established as one of the best in Nigeria.”

“We dismiss this Report and the processes associated with it in their entirety. The Report is the outcome of a process motivated by malice and conducted with patent unfairness. It is irredeemably riddled with falsehood, predetermined conclusions, and misrepresentation. The Report is bereft of rigour and accuracy and fails to demonstrate any understanding of the various matters it purported to investigate,” the statement said.
