According to Zacharia, most of the loans El-Rufai’s administration obtained were used for purposes other than those for which they were obtained, and in other cases, due processes were not followed.

Speaking after receiving the report, Yusuf Liman, the speaker of the Kaduna state assembly, stated that a total of N423 billion was diverted by the previous administration, while leaving the state in a huge debt.

Zacharia-led committee then recommended the investigation and prosecution of El-Rufai and some members of his cabinet who were indicted.

According to the committee, El-Rufai should be investigated for abuse of office, awarding contracts without due process, money laundering, leaving the state in huge debt, and diversion of public funds.
