Again, Ganduje sacks ex-commissioner over low performance
Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has sacked the Chairman, state NNPC/AKK Gas Pipeline Project and Gas Industrialisation Committee (KNSG-PDIC), Alhaji Mu’azu Magaji, with immediate effect.
This is the second time Magaji would be sacked by the governor. It will however be recalled that in April 2020, Governor Ganduje sacked Magaji as Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure for celebrating the death of the chief of staff to the president, Abba Kyari, on social media.
According to a statement signed on Tuesday by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, Governor Ganduje said that Magaji’s sack was informed by his (governor) inability to measure up with poor performance and insubordination.
However, the statement further stated that he has failed to live above board in carrying out the responsibility assigned to him to oversee the project which the government attaches great
“His leadership of the committee, which is to among other things, coordinate in close partnership with the NNPC on timely implementation of the project has not been forthcoming in working to achieve the desired objective.
“The sacked chairman was directed to hand over the affairs of the committee to the Deputy Chairman, Aminu Babba Dan‘Agundi.
“Governor Ganduje thanked him for serving and wish him success in his future endeavour,” the statement said.
