Following the revelation of massive stealing of a humongous sum of N423 billion under the former governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufa, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Sunday called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to step in and arrest El-Rufai without delay.

The party said, corruption under El-Rufai stinks to high heavens, hence, leaving him to walk freely on the street, amounts to disservice to the people of Kaduna State.

In a statement which was issued by the State Publicity Secretary of PDP, said the party has always challenged the former governor on certain questionable expenses.

CAPITAL POST recalled that Kaduna State House of Assembly’s investigations on the expenditure of the immediate past administration of Malam Nasir Elrufai, revealed a mind-boggling fraud with attendant public outcry.

The PDP therefore called on the governor of the state, Sen. Uba Sani, to, as a matter of transparency and posterity, immediately invite the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related matters Commission (ICPC) to investigate further and recover all the monies allegedly looted by those found guilty and be prosecuted as revealed and recommended by the committee’s report.

CAPITAL POST recalled that the Ad-hoc Committee set up to investigate expenses during El-Rufai’s tenure found him, Commissioners and aides culpable.

The State Assembly alleged that N423bn of state resources were siphoned under the El-Rufa’i government and asked the incumbent governor to refer the former governor, former commissioners of finance and other indicted aides to relevant security agencies for investigation.
