While submitting their report to Governor Fintiri after completing their assignment, the chairman of the committee said that former Governor Jibrilla, left a bankrupt state with a huge debt liability of N115 billion.
But a reliable source close to the State Legislature who craved for anonymity said " the information we received last week shows that the true position of debt is N127 billion and not N115 billion as reported by the committee ".
He declared that it was as a result of the information they received that the House decided to set up adhoc committee to unbundle the circumstances surrounding the high debt profile in the state.
