Has Kaduna assembly concluded investigation on El-Rufai?

The Kaduna state house of assembly's ad-hoc committee set up to investigate the administration of El-Rufai recently submitted its report to the house.

Henry Zacharia, the chairman of the committee set up to probe all finances, loans, and contracts awarded during El-Rufai's administration, gave an account of their findings on Wednesday, June 5.

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