A former Kano State Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Muazu Magaji, has tested positive for COVID-19, a few weeks after mocking President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, who died of Coronavirus.
The commissioner, who took a swipe at the deceased in a series of Facebook post April 18, had previously wished Mr Kyari not to return as Chief of Staff to the President after testing positive for Covid-19.
Notably, hours after DAILY NIGERIAN report, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje sacked Mr Magaji, saying that the commissioner ought to have respected the profanity of the office by refraining from any act capable of rendering the office to disrepute.
Writing on his Facebook page on Thursday, the former commissioner disclosed his status, saying that he had been moved to an isolation centre in the state.
“Salam brothers and sisters I have been down for some days now, NCDC protocol activated. Need your prayers,” he said.
“Dear all, I do truly apologize for you not getting across to me on phone or msgs….I have been indisposed due to ongoing health challenges some of us going through in Kano.
“This morning my NCDC test is out. I have been confirmed Covid-19 Positive. And have been moved to one of the state facilities…pray for us!
“Going through a historical moment of our time. A time we will either live to remember or we will be remembered having lived in! Which ever applies Alhamdulillah!”
