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.

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