Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has cleared the air on the widely circulated rumour that the Secretary to the State Government, Abdullahi Baffa Bichi was sacked after engaging in a misunderstanding with him.

Daily Trust reports that the SSG is currently out of the country in Saudi Arabia seeking medical attention while the Head of Civil Service, Abdullahi Musa was directed to hold the office in acting capacity.

Since then, there was widely circulated news across social media especially from members of the opposition party that the duo had a fallout after the arrest of a Senior Special Assistant to the Governor caught siphoning foodstuff (palliative) meant to be distributed to the vulnerable people.

The SSA was believed to be from the quarters of the SSG and his public prosecution triggered his boss who reportedly complained bitterly to the governor.

But reacting to the issue, the governor on Tuesday, shortly after swearing in of newly appointed Permanent Secretaries, said he neither sacked the SSG nor did he have any misunderstanding with him.

“Someone was saying that he was there when we engaged in two fighting. This is the highest level of ignorance but we pray God should relieve them.

“SSG is still there in his position unshakable and we are thankful to him for the kind of contributions he gave and hope when he returns he sustains the tempo.

“While Head of Service holds the position in his (SSG’s) absence doesn’t mean that he was sacked. We have not relieved him of his position,” the governor said.
