Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State said that his administration had recovered N24 billion from 423 accounts operated by his predecessor.
He made this known in a town hall meeting in Kafanchan. Represented by his deputy, Bala Barnabas Bantex, he said the adoption of a single account by the state government brought about the recovery of the huge amount of money.
According to him, “we will not relent until we have the actual number of our civil servants. Not only do we have ghost workers, we also have ghost schools in the state.”
The governor reiterated his government’s resolve to protect the integrity of public institutions and to reclaim public lands encroached on.
He said the impunity that led to some personalities to conclude that public lands are for private use “is being corrected.”
