The Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has relieved the appointment of the commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Mu’azu Magaji with immediate effect.
This was made known in a statement signed by the commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba.
Magaji had took to his Facebook account saying in vernacular that the death of Abba Kyari is a win win for Nigeria, “ Abba Kyari is death, Nigeria is free.” Magaji allegedly stated.
In one of his code-switching posts on Facebook, Mr Magaji prayed for the repose of the deceased but said: “Win win… Nigeria is free and Abba kyari ya mutu a cikin annoba… Mutuwar shahada in Har da Imani mutum ya cika!”
In another post he said: You can’t change history…. You are who you are, and what you do define who you are…. dead or alive!”
He said the commissioner was removed following his unguarded utterances against the person of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.
He said as a public servant, the commissioner ought to have respect for 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 personal vendetta or otherwise” the statement read.
Abba Kyari who tested positive to coronavirus, died on Friday and was buried at the Gudu cemetery, Abuja on Saturday.
The governor noted that late Abba Kyari had led a life worthy of emulation by serving his country to the best of his ability.
