Community urges El-Rufai to probe predecessor

11 September 2015, 21:49

Zaria - Kaura community in Zaria local government area of Kaduna state has appealed to Gov. Nasiru el-Rufa'i to probe the immediate past administration in the state with a view to recovering siphoned funds.

Addressing journalists in Zaria on Friday, the spokesperson of the community, Alhaji Abdullahi Magaji-Baba, said the call became imperative in view of the alleged mismanagement of resources that characterised the last administration.

Magaji-Baba, who hails from the same ward with former governor Mukhtar Yero, expressed disappointment over the failure of the ex-governor to complete the Zaria water project.

"We in Kaura ward in particular and Zaria in general has suffered from the lingering water shortage which was a product of previous administration.

"Records have shown that the previous administration had received over N200 billion as federal allocation in three years but there is no project worth N500 million in the state,’’ he said.

According to him, the checking and correcting the wrongs of predecessors will deter others from committing similar atrocities.
He advised the present administration to endeavour to redeem its campaign promises for positive change.
