Bello Matawalle, Zamfara state governor has said at least N107 billion was stolen by the previous administration in the state, from the treasury.
Matawalle made this known in a Twitter post yesterday, revealing that a committee he set up to probe financial mismanagement in the state made the discovery.
The governor therefore vowed that administration will recover the stolen funds.
Although Matawalle did not give details, Abdulaziz Yari, the immediate former governor of the state, was in charge of the previous administration.
“Yesterday, I received the final report of Alhaji Ahmad Zabarma-led committee on mismanagement of public finances and procurement processes,” Matawalle said.
“A whopping sum of N107 billion was stolen from state coffers by previous administration. We will recover these embezzled funds!”
