The Kaduna State Government has dismissed three employees of the Local Government Service Commission in the state for defrauding pilgrims who paid for participation in the Hajj.

 The letter to that effect signed by Zakari Mohammed, Deputy Director, Administration and Finance, dated June 21, 2016 for the state Head of Service, said the three were fired for breach of trust, cheating, dishonesty and serious misconduct. He said appropriate action had been taken.

Also, three directors of the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency and two others from the Kaduna State Geographic Information Service were dismissed for abusing the revised Millennium City layout.

 The dismissal followed the directives of the Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufa’i, as decided by the State Executive Council after its 17th meeting which held on May 9, 2016, Punch Newspaper reports.

Letters of dismissal, signed by Mrs. Grace Yusuf Bature on behalf of the General Manager, KASUPDA, Saratu M. Haruna, and obtained by our correspondent, were said to have been delivered to Charles Akau Ibrahim, Director of Urban Planning and Research; Adamu Aliyu Nuhu, Director, Development Control; and Philemon Mairabo.

According to the letter, the sacking of the top directors followed the State Executive Council’s deliberations over a report of the committee that investigated the role of some employees of the former Ministry of Land, Surveys and Country Planning, KASUPDA, and some traditional rulers in distorting the revised Millennium City layout.

It read, “Sequel to your suspension from the service via letter No.PER/SEC.351/Vol.1/006, dated  May 31,2016; I am directed to convey to you the State Executive Council’s decision at its 17th meeting held on May 9, 2016, and to dismiss you from the service of the state government with immediate effect.

Similarly, a letter signed by Ibrahim Hussaini, dated May 19, 2016, said two employees of KADGIS – Mr. Jacob Makadas Kogi and Mr. Joshua Gambas were also suspended over abuse of the revised Millennium City layout land.
