Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the executive Governor of Kano State, has relieved the appointment of the Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Mu’azu Magaji with immediate effect.
This sack comes following the commissioners unguarded utterances against the person of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari. The Governor stated that as public servant, the commissioner ought to have respect the office by refraining from any act capable of rendering it to disrepute.
According to a statement from the Kano State Government House, late Abba Kyari had led a life worthy of emulation by serving his country to the best of his ability.
Governor Ganduje, further stated that, 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.”
Abba Kyari battled the COVID-19 nearly a month after testing positive, he lost the battle with the disease as aides to the president announced that he died on Friday, April the 17, 2020.
