The report accused El-Rufai and his commisioners of abuse of office, awarding contracts without due process, diverting public funds, money laundering, and excessive borrowing which left the state heavily indebted.

It was recommended that El-Rufai and some of his officials indicted by the House Committee,be further investigated by security operatives and anti-graft agencies.
