Kano’s Gov Yusuf denies sacking SSG Bichi


Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has spoken for the first time after months of the rumoured removal of the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Abdullahi Baffa Bichi.

“I overheard some useless persons speaking with full authority on the local radio programme that there was an exchange of deadly blows between myself and the SSG,” the governor said.

“You know, some people who are jobless see politics as their source of living, and they always try to create rumours to create unnecessary tension, but this time they have failed woefully.”

The governor explained that the SSG is presently recuperating from his sickness and that as soon as he is back, he will take charge of his position and continue where he stopped.

“Because we have appointed the State Head of Service as acting SSG, that does not mean we sacked Bichi; we cannot allow the position to be vacant because of its sensitive nature,” he said.


Governor Yusuf, who spoke while swearing in the new permanent secretaries and special advisers in the Africa House of the Government House on Tuesday, said no amount of propaganda will deter his government from achieving its desired goals.
