Muazu Magaji, commissioner of works and infrastructure in Kano state has lost his job over his comments on the death of Abba Kyari.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje ordered for his sacked

Recall on Friday, the presidency announced the death of Kyari, the chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement, Muhammad Garba, commissioner for information, said Magaji was removed owing to his unguarded utterances.

“Kano state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has relieved the appointment of the commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Mu’azu Magaji with immediate effect,” he said.

“As a public servant, the commissioner ought to have respect 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.”

In a series of posts on his Facebook page, Magaji was said to have made unpleasant remarks over Kyari’s demise.

“Win win … Nigeria is free and Abba Kyari dies in epidemic… The martyrdom of man is perfect!” one of his posts read.

In another post, he said: “I am not a hypocrite and I won’t pretend! While at personal level I pray Allah grant Abba Kyari Jannah…I sincerely believe Nigeria needed a better CoS period!”
