Masari sacks commissioner over ‘2019 politics’


Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has relieved his Commissioner for Education, Prof. Halimatu Sa’adiyya, of her duties.

It was gathered that the commissioner was hacked over alleged inability to be more proactive towards the politics of 2019.

A press statement by Masari’s Senior Special Assistant (Media), Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, said that the Commissioner’s sack was with immediate effect.

The statement quoted the governor as thanking Prof. Sa’adiyya for her services to the state, noting however that, “taking into account the fact that political activities leading to elections would commence early next year, it has become necessary for  the government to bring more active politicians on board so as to fasten activities of governance.
