Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has sacked Engr. Mu’azu Magaji (Dansarauniya) as the Executive Chairman, state NNPC/AKK Gas Pipeline Project and Gas Industrialisation Committee.
This is the second time that the governor will be relieving Magaji of his duty following his earlier sack as a commissioner after a post on Facebook inferred he mocked the death of Abba Kyari, erstwhile Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, who had died of complications from COVID-19.
In his latest dismissal, the governor, according to a statement by the state’s Commissioner of Information, Muhammad Garba, accused Magaji of poor performance and insurbodination.
Magaji was appointed to chair the committee in April, 2020 to supervising the effective execution of the project.
But the statement said the controversial ex-commissioner had failed to live above board in carrying out the responsibility assigned to him to oversee the project.
According to the statement, his leadership of the committee, which is to among other things, coordinate in close partnership with the NNPC on timely implementation of the project had not been forthcoming in working to achieve the desired objective.
The statement said the governor directed Magaji to hand over the affairs of the committee to the deputy executive chairman, Aminu Babba Dan‘Agundi, Sarkin Dawaki Babba.
