The Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has sacked the Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Mu’azu Magaji in his state.

According to a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, the governor’s decision is with immediate effect.

“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,” it reads in part.

Abba Kyari was the immediate past Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, and a close friend.

He lost the battle against Covid-19 on Friday 17 April, 2020.
