The Governor of Kano State, Umar Ganduje, has fired Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure in the state, Engr Mu’azu Magaji over a statement against the late chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari.

A statement by the state government on Saturday said, “H.E @GovUmarGanduje has relieved the appointment of the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr Mu’azu Magaji, with immediate effect.

“Following his unguarded utterances against the person of late Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari.”

Special Assistant to President Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, had earlier tweeted, “I am really disappointed and pained by the Kano State Commissioner for Works, Engr Muazu Magaji’s remarks on Mallam Abba Kyari’s demise.

“The commissioner was seen publicly celebrating the death on his Facebook page. I hope @KanoStateNG and @GovUmarGanduje will call him to order.”

Below is the statement that cost Mu’azu's job:

"Abba Kyari is no ordinary citizen he amassed so much power that decide the fate of my nation and its people.. Hence his death is never a personal death.

"There is a world of difference between a good person and a good leader.. Leadership is an aggregated quality of mass empathy not personal favour!

"Nigeria is bigger than any individual... While praying for the presidents late support staff.. Ours is to prevent a repeat of his non accountable domination era!

"In institutional democracy no individual is bigger than the state... Our interest is to get equity and capacity in highest position of power.. Its not personal.
