Zamfara Government has accused the administration of ex-Governor Abdulaziz Yari of diverting N10.8billion meant for the State’s university project.
Commissioner of Finance, Rabiu Garba, made the accusation at a press briefing in Gusau on Tuesday.
“Based on the records available to us, the past administration in the state had diverted the sum of N10.8billion from the N37billion refunded to the State by the federal government”, NAN quoted him as saying.
Garba said the reimbursement was for the construction of 14 federal roads.
The official alleged that the misappropriated fund was transferred in two tranches – N5 billion each.
Also, N850 million was transferred to same account on 9th May 2019.
Garba lamented that the total sum was diverted to issues that have nothing to do with the university project.
