Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano has sacked the northwestern state’s infrastructure and works commissioner, Muazu Magaji, for “celebrating the death of Mallam Abba Kyari’”.
Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, died on Friday after battling with the dreaded Coronavirus and was buried on Saturday in Abuja.
Magaji’s sack is contained in a statement by Mallam Muhammad Garba, the Commissioner of Information, a copy of which was made available to newsmen on Saturday in Kano.
Garba disclosed that Magaji was sacked following his “unguarded utterances on social media, against the late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari”.
