Ganduje sacks controversial Mu'azu Magaji

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has relieved Engineer Mu'azu Magaji of his job for the second time.

It would be recalled that Ganduje first sacked Magaji, who was then Commissioner for Works, after a Facebook post where he mocked the demise of Abba Kyari, the former Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, who passed on from COVID-19 complications.

Magaji was later appointed by the Governor as the Executive Chairman, State NNPC/AKK Gas Pipeline Project and Gas Industrialization Committee, some months after his sack. It was however reported that Magaji was again sacked from his new post owing to poor performance and insubordination.

According to a statement released by the state government, his appointment in April 2020 was based on the hope that he would work diligently to supervise the effective execution of the project. but he was said to have failed to live up to expectation in carrying out the responsibility assigned to him in overseeing the project the government had attached great importance.

The statement read further, "His leadership of the committee among which is to coordinate, in close partnership with NNPC on timely implementation of the project, has not been forthcoming to achieve the desired objective".

Magaji has therefore been directed to hand over the affairs of the committee to the Deputy Executive Chairman, Mr Aminu Babba-Dan'Agundi, who is the Sarkin Dawaki Babba.
