Kano state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has relieved Engr. Mu’azu Magaji of his appointment as the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, with immediate effect.

A statement signed by the Kano State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba said Engr. Magaji was removed following his unguarded utterances against the person of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari.

He said as a public servant, the ousted Commissioner ought to have respected the profanity of the office by refraining from any act capable of subjecting the office to disrepute.

The action of a public servant, according to the statement, be it personal or otherwise, reflects on the government and therefore, “the Ganduje administration would not tolerate people in official capacities engaging in personal vendetta or otherwise”, the release added.

According to the statement, late Abba Kyari had led a life worthy of emulation by serving his country to the best of his ability.
