Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, has sacked the state’s Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mu’azu Magaji, over his comments on the death of Abba Kyari, the chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.
On his Facebook page, Magaji was said to have made unpleasant remarks over Kyari’s demise.
“Win win… Nigeria is free and Abba Kyari has died in the epidemic… the death of a martyr… if he is a believer, the person is complete,” one of his posts read.
In another post, Magaji wrote, “For the good of Nigeria and Mr President… The CoS office should be split… A PPS (principal private secretary) and a humble manager of his office as CoS… It is currently too powerful for a non-elected official.”
A statement by the state government on Saturday said, “H.E @GovUmarGanduje has relieved the appointment of the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr Mu’azu Magaji, with immediate effect.
“Following his unguarded utterances against the person of late Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari.”
