Kano state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, has relieved the appointment of the Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Mu’azu Magaji, with immediate effect.
A statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba said the Commissioner was removed following his unguarded utterances against the person of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari.
He said as a public servant, the Commissioner ought to have respect for the profanity of the office by refraining from any act capable of rendering the office to disrepute.
“The action of a public servant, personal or otherwise, reflects back on the government and therefore, the Ganduje administration would not tolerate people in official capacities engaging in personal vendetta or otherwise”, he said.
According to the statement, late Abba Kyari had led a life worthy of emulation by serving his country to the best of his ability.
Meanwhile, some updates from the dismissed Commissioner’s Facebook Account @MuazMagaji reads, “Abba Kyari is no ordinary citizen, he amassed so much power that decides the fate of my nation and its people… Hence, his death is never a personal death!
“I am not a hypocrite and I won’t pretent!(sic) While at personal level I prayed Allah grant Abba Kyari Jannah…I sincerely believe Nigeria needed a better CoS period!”
Furthermore, after the news of his sack, he took to his Facebook to thank the Governor.
He also wrote to express gratitude to the Governor for the opportunity to serve.
