Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has sacked the state’s commissioner for works and infrastructure, Engineer Mu’azu Magaji.
The commissioner was fired over his unguarded utterances against the late chief of staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari, a statement signed by the commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba, disclosed.
Ganduje said the commissioner, as a public servant, ought to have respected the office by refraining from any act capable of rendering it to disrepute, The Nation reports.
President Buhari’s personal assistant on new media, Bashir Ahmad, had said on Twitter that the sacked commissioner was publicly celebrating Kyari’s death on his Facebook page.
“I am really disappointed and pained by the Kano State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Muazu Magaji’s remarks on Mallam Abba Kyari’s demise, the commissioner was seen publicly celebrating the death on his Facebook page. I hope @KanoStateNG and @GovUmarGanduje will call him to order,” Ahmad tweeted.
After the commissioner was sacked, Ahmad said: “The Governor has taken an action, the Commissioner has just been sacked following his unguarded utterances.
“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.”
