Police Invite Former Kano Commissioner And Vocal Critic Of Governor Ganduje

The police have invited Muaz Magaji, a former Kano commissioner who was fired by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for a remark he made about the death of President Muhammadu Buhari’s former Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

Magaji, who became a vocal opponent of Ganduje after quitting the Kano governor’s cabinet, said he was “called to the police SIB political unit in Kano on allegations he is awaiting to hear.”

He reportedly claimed that the Kano state government had intimidated him. He composed:

 “After failing to shut down my Facebook page, Kano State Government have resorted to intimidation using state police apparatus.

“Moments ago I have officially been invited to police SIB political unit, Kano on charges am waiting to hear!”

In other news, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has warned Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, that only the best will be able to govern Nigeria in the future.

On Saturday, January 15, Makinde made this disclosure after he paid a condolence visit to Tinubu following the deaths of the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi; the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji; and former Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala.

The APC national leader, speaking at the statehouse, said:

 “I want to thank you, the governor. It was only last night that I thought of my coming here and we are here today. Having lost a former governor of this state, the Olubadan of Ibadanland and Soun of Ogbomoso, it is just for us to go back to the sense of value of people and their lives.

“With this situation, we share in your loss. You, as the governor in the saddle of power, take responsibility for the situation here. I want to say that we thank God Ibadan has been peaceful and not a den of violence but peaceful.

“Every other thing that has happened has taught us in the book of religion that we are just passing through and we will leave one day. But no matter how long, it is difficult to absorb the loss easily.

“Thank you for being accommodating. We gave you a short notice and you responded.

“That is a demonstration of good character, which is rare. People get, sometimes, intoxicated with power and the arrogance of office can be overwhelming, but not with you. Thank you for receiving us so quickly.”

Given that it is election season, Makinde believes Tinubu should ask why he needs to visit the government residence, stating that people may interpret it differently.

When asked about Tinubu’s intention in running for president in 2023, the governor of Oyo state wished him well, but said that Nigerians “want the best for our country, and only the best is good enough at this time.”

Makinde said; 

“I want to welcome you to Oyo State. We are really grateful for this visit. This is the year political parties will elect their candidates towards the election that is coming next year. So, what this has demonstrated to us is, you stood for politics without bitterness.

“During this political season, you may have to question yourself on why you need to come to the Government House because people might have another interpretation to it. But you sent a message across to me and I was delighted to host you in Ibadan.

“We lost two traditional rulers almost in quick succession.

“First, it was Soun of Ogbomosoland, and we were planning for the burial when the Olubadan of Ibadanland also joined his ancestors. We were still in the middle of that when former Governor Alao-Akala also died. I can see that in Oyo State, we try to take politics out of what we call ‘Omoluabi’.

“We may fight, struggle for political positions but we know power can only come from God and He gives it to whomever He will like to give it to at whatever time.

“We really thank you for this visit and want to let you know that we have taken proper notice that you have risen above politics and all that is going around here to visit us at this moment that we are grieving. We say thank you.

“Let me also use this opportunity to wish you well in your political quest to govern this nation. We want the best for this country and only the best is good enough at this particular time.”
