Ganduje sacks commissioner over ‘unguarded utterances, disloyalty’



Abdullahi Ganduje, Kano governor, has sacked Tahar Adam, the state’s commissioner for religious affairs, over “unguarded utterances”.


According to a statement on Saturday by Muhammad Garba, Kano commissioner for information and internal affairs, the commissioner was also found guilty of running the affairs of his office as personal business.


The information commissioner said the removal was with immediate effect.


Garba said the state governor has already forwarded the name of Nazifi Ishaq Bichi to the house of assembly as a replacement.


Garba said Adam’s sack from the office followed his unbecoming attitude as a public servant holding sensitive office.


Adam was also said to have “unilaterally reduced working days for the staff of the ministry, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays”.


Garba added that apart from operating without due consultation, the sacked commissioner was not loyal to the state government.


 “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 a replacement for screening and appointment as the new commissioner,” the statement reads.


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