El-Rufai recovers N4bn
Kaduna state governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai recently revealed that his government had recovered N4 billion belonging to the state.
The money was hidden in 470 different bank accounts across all the 23 commercial banks in the country.
The recovery of the funds was made known at the town hall meeting, which El-Rufai’s government began as a means of connecting with the people.
El-Rufai was represented at the meeting by his deputy, Barnabbas Bala, who stated that it was the state’s new Single Treasury Account system that enabled them find the money.
“With the system, we have been able to trace and discover the sum of N4bn in different account names in 23 banks. The STA is to ensure that public funds are traceable and for the sake of accountability in the state,” he said.
