The pensioners, in a petition dated May 20, 2015
and signed by one Barrister A.B Bulama Esq, said
the pensioners’ trustees had deposited N2billion
in Euro Bank Plc, Kano branch, at the urgings of
Mr. Kwankwaso.
They said soon after the deposit was made the
bank went into liquidation and the former
governor refused to follow up for claims.
They asked the EFCC to invite Mr. Kwankwaso to
explain why he refused to follow up the case of
the N2billion pension fund at the NDIC.
The petitioners noted that Mr. Kwankwaso was
not a trustee of their funds and thus lacked the
authority to deal with the funds as he liked.
They also queried the continued withholding of
their money, about N10billion, by the
commissioner of finance and the accountant
general.
They said when they began to ask questions, the
former governor told them he had purchased
three warehouses for them at the Free Trade
Zone in Kano.
He also said his housing projects, Amana City,
had been transferred to the pension trust fund in
lieu of the retained N10 billion.
The petitioners, however, noted that the Mr.
Kwankwaso’s actions were illegal and bordered
on fraud.
“For this and many more we ask the EFCC to do
a thorough job to unravel the fraud done in all
issues relating to us,” the pensioners said.
Mr. Kwankwaso could not be reached immediately
for this story.
