Kano govt lied, i resigned my appointment- Ex-Commissioner
The immediate past Kano State Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Dr Muhammad Tahar Adam has said he resigned his appointment voluntarily denying report that he was sacked by Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje.
SOLACEBASE recalls that Kano State Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba had issued a statement on Saturday announcing the sacking of Dr Muhammad Tahar Adam, popularly called “Baba Impossible” as Commissioner for Religious Affairs.
In an interview with Freedom Radio on Saturday, “Baba Impossible” expressed surprise over the news of his sacking noting that he submitted his letter of resignation on Friday, December, 30th 2022, to Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji.
‘’Alhaji Usman Alhaji collected my resignation letter and stamped it. I also went to the office of the Chief of Staff, who is also the Head of Service, and he stamp the letter,’’ Baba Impossible said.
The former commissioner said he was amazed to hear on the media that he was relieved of his appointment which is a blatant lie.
According to him, the evidence is there and I have it , why would a responsible government lie?
He said his resignation is based on personal reasons.
“Baba Impossible” noted that if the state government continue to dish out lies about him , he would be compelled to hit back.
However, in the statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, ‘’ the sack of the commissioner for Religious Affairs 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.
