Kano government sacks four over falsified property sales
The Kano State Government terminated from service four workers of the state Bureau for Land Management on Tuesday, accusing them of selling public lands, faking papers, providing fraudulent cadastral information, and falsifying official records.
A statement signed by the state commissioner for information, Malam Muhammad Garba on Tuesday named the dismissed officers as, Abdulmuminu Usman Magami, Senior Survey Assistant on Salary Grade Level 06 and Abdullahi Nuhu Idris, Senior Land Officer on Salary Grade Level 10.
The remaining members are: Audu Abba Aliyu, Press Attendant on Salary Level 05, and Baba Audu, Assistant Chief Land Officer on Salary Grade 13.
According to Garba, the officials were fired on the advice of an Investigative Committee, which was established by the government in response to complaints lodged against them and found them guilty of the offenses.
He said that their dismissal was carried out in line with Civil Service Rule No.04406, and that the decision was made in order to serve as a deterrence to others.
The Commissioner issued a warning that the State Government “would not tolerate any misbehavior on the part of any government official.”
According to him, “as a result, all government personnel are required to carry out their obligations honestly, diligently, effectively, and in compliance with civil service laws and regulations.”
