Governor Ganduje Sacks Commissioner For Running ‘Affairs of His Office As Personal Business’


The Commissioner for Religious Affairs in Kano state, Dr Muhammad Tahar Adam has been sacked with immediate effect.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State who approved the sack, accused of Adam of making unguarded utterances and running the affairs of his office as personal business.

A statement issued on Friday by the State Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Mallam Muhammad Garba, said the removal was with immediate effect.

Garba said Ganduje has already forwarded the name of a nominee, Dr Nazifi Ishaq Bichi of Bayero University, Kano to the House of Assembly as a replacement.

He said 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.

According to him, the former Commissioner popularly known as ‘Baba Impossible’ 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.”

The Commissioner added that apart from operating without due consultation, Baba Impossible has not been loyal to the government.

The governor, the statement added, wished the sacked Commissioner the best of luck in his future endeavours.
