JUST IN: Governor Umar Ganduje of Kano State has relieved the appointment of the Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Engr Mu’azu Magaji, he was removed following his unguarded utterances against the person of late Abba Kyari, a statement from the State Information Commissioner.

Reactions have trailed comments by Kano state Commissioner for Works, Engr. Muazu Magaji who celebrated the death of Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting to his comments, one of President Buhari’s aid, Bashir Ahmed, who expressed disappointment via his twitter handle wondered why such a government official would choose to make such remarks on the deceased.

He said, “I am really disappointed and pained by the Kano State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Muazu Magaji’s remarks on Mallam Abba Kyari’s demise, the commissioner was seen publicly celebrating the death on his Facebook page. I hope @KanoStateNG and @GovUmarGanduje will call him to order.

“It can be easily overlooked when some minor misguided people celebrate Malam Abba Kyari or anyone’s death, but when it’s a member of Kano Executive Council, a commissioner it would be hard to do the same, Engr Magaji’s action was irresponsible, for God’s sake he is a stakeholder.”

Engr. Muazu Magaji is the second person after special adviser to Oyo state governor on media to lose his position in the political class in the Coronavirus era.
