He made this statement through the commissioner of information for Kano State, Muhammad Garba. He said the commissioner was to be relieved of his appointment immediately.
“The sacking of the commissioner and member of the state executive council followed his unbecoming attitude as a public servant holding sensitive office, as well as unguarded utterances.
“That he was also found to be running the affairs of his office as personal business and even unilaterally reducing working days for the staff of the ministry, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays.
“Apart from operating without due consultation, Baba Impossible has not been loyal to the government”.
“Already, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has sent to the state House of Assembly the name of a nominee in person of Dr. Nazifi Ishaq Bichi of Bayero University, Kano as replacement for screening and appointment as new commissioner.
“The governor wished the sacked commissioner the best of luck in his future endeavors,” the statement read.
