Tahar Adamu Kano 2

The former Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Kano State, Tahar Adamu, has said that he had tendered resignation of his appointment before the state government announced that he has been dismissed as a Commissioner. 

The Informant247 recalls that the state government sacked the Commissioner over “unguarded utterances”.

The Kano State Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Muhammad Garba, in a statement revealed that Adamu was accused of running state affairs as a private business.

The dismissed official was also alleged to have “unilaterally reduced working days for the ministry staff, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays”.

The Information Commissioner said Adamu was not loyal to the government of the state.

Reacting during a radio interview, Adamu disclosed that he forwarded his resignation letter to the Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, on Friday.

He said reading the news of his sack from the office came to him as a surprise.

“I resigned because of some personal reasons and I wrote them in a letter detailing my reasons, and I took it to Alhaji Usman Alhaji, the secretary to the state government, who collected the letter, signed and stamped it and collected a copy for the governor,” he said.

“I came out and went to see the chief of staff, who is the current head of service in his office. My resignation letter was stamped and I gave him the governor’s copy and left.

“The surprising thing is, I submitted the letter on Friday, the 30th of December, 2022. Then, today, I saw on a page that the government through the commissioner of information has sacked me because of disloyalty and other things.

“This is the surprising thing. What I believe is that a proper government shouldn’t lie because this scenario is filled with lies.

“A person took a letter to the secretary to the state government and the head of the service which was signed and accepted. Then later, someone will say you’ve been sacked. From where were you sacked? Was it after I was sacked that my resignation letter was accepted or when it was accepted that I was sacked?

“So, this is something that has passed. But if they continue, we will also continue. This is the truth of the matter.”
