Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has sacked the state Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Dr Muhammad Tahar Adam, popularly known as “Baba Impossible”.
The state Commissioner for information and Internal Affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
He said the sack of the commissioner is with immediate effect.
The statement read in part, “The sacking of the commissioner and member of the state executive council followed his unbecoming attitude as a public servant holding sensitive office, as well as unguarded utterances.”
Malam Garba pointed out that he was also found to be running the affairs of his office as personal business and even unilaterally reducing working days for the staff of the ministry, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays.
The commissioner added that apart from operating without due consultation, Baba Impossible has not been loyal to the government.
He announced that the governor had sent the name of Dr Nazifi Ishaq Bichi of Bayero University, Kano, to the state House of Assembly as replacement.
The governor wished the sacked commissioner the best of luck in his future endeavours.
