The Kano state commissioner for Works and Infrastructural Development, Engr. Muazu Magaji, who was sacked by the Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, for celebrating the death of Mallam Abba Kyari, has been tested positive for COVID-19.
The sacked commissioner disclosed this on his facebook page.
“This morning my NCDC (Nigeria Centre for Disease Control) test came out, I have been confirmed positive for COVID-19. And have been moved to one of the state’s facilities”.
After his sack, Matazu denied the allegations levied against him, saying he was being misunderstood.
“I want to sincerely clear up what a lot of people may have misunderstood and set the record straight. As a Muslim and a patriotic Nigerians, I was only misunderstood by people to think that I celebrated Kyari’s death, the truth is I did not.”
