Ex-Kaduna speaker makes damning revelation, denies approving $350m World Bank loan for El-Rufai

The probe instituted by the Kaduna State House of Assembly into loans obtained by the administration of a former governor of the state, Nasir El-Rufai promises to be an interesting one that will through up many intrigues.

This indication came to the fore when a former Speaker of the Assembly, Yusuf Zailani, denied claims that the Ninth Assembly under his leadership approved the $350m World Bank loan obtained by former Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

It will be recalled that the Kaduna State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, set up a fact-finding committee to probe all finances, loans and contract projects awarded, as well as other financial spending and abandoned projects initiated by the immediate past government, between 2015 to 2023, under El-Rufai’s administration.
