APC contestants must undergo drug test: Kano Gov

Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has sacked his Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Muhammad Tahar Adam, for alleged disloyalty.

This is contained in a statement by Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba on Saturday, saying aside from being disloyal to the governor, the government was not comfortable with Adam’s “unguarded utterances.”

His sack is with immediate effect.

Meanwhile, Dr. Nazifi Bichi has been nominated by the governor to replace him.

Garba noted that the sack of Adam, popularly known as (Baba Impossible) followed “his unbecoming attitude as a public servant holding sensitive office, as well as unguarded utterances.”

“He (Muhammad Tahar Adam) was also found to be running the affairs of his office as a personal business and even unilaterally reducing working days for the staff of the ministry, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays.

“Apart from operating without due consultation, Baba Impossible has not been loyal to the government.

“Already, 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, for screening and appointment as new commissioner for religious affairs,” Garba said.

Ganduje, the statement added, wished the sacked commissioner the best of luck in his future endeavours.
