The Kano State Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Dr Muhammad Adam (better known as Baba Impossible) has been relieved of his appointment.
The state Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba, said in a statement on Saturday that the removal was with immediate effect.
He said that the action followed the “unbecoming attitude as a public servant, as well as unguarded utterances”.
Garba said that Adam was also found to be running the affairs of his office as personal business and unilaterally reducing working days for the staff of his Ministry, exempting Wednesdays and Fridays.
He added that apart from operating without due consultation, Baba Impossible has not been loyal to the government.
Adam also said that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has sent to the state House of Assembly the name of Dr Nazifi Ishaq Bichi of Bayero University, Kano as his nominee, for screening and appointment as commissioner.
