The Kano State Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Dr Muhammad Adam, also known as Baba Impossible, has been relieved of his appointment.

The state Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba, who announced the sacking of the commissioner in a statement issued on Saturday, said the removal was with immediate effect.

He said the sacking of the commissioner and member of the State Executive Council followed his unbecoming attitude as a public servant, as well as unguarded utterances.

Garba pointed out that he was also found to be running the affairs of his office as personal business and unilaterally reducing working days for the staff of the ministry, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays.

He added that apart from operating without due consultation, “Baba Impossible” has not been loyal to the government.

He announced further that Governor Abdullahi 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 as replacement for screening and appointment as new commissioner.
