Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, on Saturday fired the Commissioner for Works, Muazu Magaji, for making alleged disparaging remarks about the departed Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari.
The sacking was announced in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba.
It said the commissioner was removed for making “unguarded utterances” against Kyari.
He said that “as a public servant, the commissioner ought to have respect 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.”
