JUST IN: Kano Gov. sacks commissioner for openly celebrating Abba kyari’s death

By Monsuru Olowoopejo
The Governor of Kano State, Umar Ganduje, has sacked the commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr Mu’azu Magaji, over his comments on demise of late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.

 

Magaji was said to have rejoiced publicly after the death of Abba Kyari was announced by Special Adviser to President, Femi Adesina, earlier on Saturday.
The action of the Commissioner, it was gathered, did not go too well with the Presidency and many criticized the act including Personal Assistant to the President on new media, Bashir Ahmad, posting on his official social media handle his dissatisfaction over Magaji’s action.
Responding to the public outcry that had trailed the action of Magaji, commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, in a statement on Saturday, explained that the governor removed Magaji following his unguarded utterances against the person of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.
Garba said 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 a personal vendetta or otherwise”.
According to the statement, late Abba Kyari had led a life worthy of emulation by serving his country to the best of his ability.

 

Buhari’s aide, Ahmad, had said: “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 Kano State Government and Gov Umar Ganduje will call him to order.
“It can be easily overlooked when some minor misguided people celebrate Malam Abba Kyari or anyone’s death, but when it’s a member of Kano Executive Council, a commissioner it would be hard to do the same, Engr Magaji’s action was irresponsible, for God’s sake he is a stakeholder”.
