Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has approved the removal of Engr. Mu’azu Magaji as the Executive Chairman, state NNPC/AKK Gas Pipeline Project and Gas Industrialisation Committee (KNSG-PDIC) with immediate effect.
Solacebase reports that the sacking of the chairman was informed by his inability to measure up with poor performance and insubordination.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, on Monday.
It could be recalled that in April 2020, Gov. Ganduje sacked Engr. Magaji as commissioner of Works and Infrastructure for celebrating the death of the chief of staff to the president, Abba Kyari, on the social media.
However, some months later, Ganduje appointed Magaji as the Executive Chairman, state NNPC/AKK Gas Pipeline Project, and Gas Industrialisation Committee.
The statement said he has failed to live above board in carrying out the responsibility assigned to him to oversee the project which the government attaches great premium.
