Buhari will ask looters to refund stolen fund – El-Rufai
Kaduna State Governor-elect, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, has stated that the outgoing administration of President Goodluck Jonathan is leaving a huge debt for the incoming government.
The ex-FCT Minister said the incoming government to be led by Gen. Muhammadu Buhari would ask politicians both at the state and federal levels, to return looted funds.
The Governor-elect, who spoke to executive members of the National Union of Textile Garments and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, who were on a courtesy visit to him in Kaduna, believed such politicians must be ready to refund ill-gotten money after May 29.
According to him, “We will politely ask those who stole government money to return the funds.
“This is because the APC government is made up of people who are ready to work for the masses and the betterment of the country.
“We will work with the textile union to ensure that the lives of the average Nigerians get better.”
The ex-minister also lamented the sorry state of the textile industry in Kaduna State, promising that his administration would bring back the liquidated industry.
He lamented the current employment figure of 1,600 employees in the textile sector, describing the situation as unacceptable, adding that the textile industries in Kaduna used to employ about 33,000 workers.
According to el-Rufai, the APC government would revive the textile industries, which he hoped would generate employment and impact on the lives of the people.
He said, “We have met at a forum of northern governors-elect and we decided to ensure the revival of the textile industries.
“It is a shame that the largest economy in Africa imports textile materials from Senegal and other countries”.
