EFCC Quizzes Kwankwaso Over Alleged N10bn Pension Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) interrogated former governor of Kano State Rabiu Kwankwaso for several hours on Saturday over alleged non-remittance of N10 billion pensions fund.

Kwankwaso reportedly turned himself in at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja after previously shunning invitations from the anti-graft agency.

The ex-governor was alleged to have misappropriated the said fund during his tenure as governor between 2011 and 2015.

The EFCC, it was gathered, began investigating following a 2015 petition by Concerned Kano State Workers and Pensioners, who alleged that the former senator violated the Kano State Pension and Gratuity Law of 2007 by failing to remit the pensions contribution.

Kwankwaso had allegedly directed that the pension remittances be used for housing development, which was later awarded to cronies. More than 1,500 houses were built under the arrangement.
