Kano State commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Muazu Magaji, who was sacked on Saturday for saying the death of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, had brought freedom to Nigeria, has fired darts at Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Taking a swipe at the governor in a series of Facebook posts on Saturday evening, the sacked commissioner said he had joined the likes of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, whom the governor dethroned last month.
But he bowed not to leave the state like Sanusi did.
Posting in Hausa, the commissioner said: “Nima na Shiga laying Murabus… Saidai ba inda aka tafi Dani, ina nan a Kano Daram”, meaning: “I have joined the line of dethronement… But I have not been taken anywhere, I’m in Kano no shaking”.
In another post, the sacked commissioner said: “Allah SWT yasa shine mafi Alheri!, interpreted as “may the Almighty make it the best for me”.
