Former Governor of Old Kaduna State, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa’s son, Ibrahim Balarabe Musa, was among Permanent Secretaries and Accountant-General relieved of their jobs by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai.
The governor also announced the appointment of Umar Hassan Waziri as the new Accountant-General of the state.
The sack of Ibrahim Balarabe Musa may not be unconnected with his father’s virulent criticisms of the governor since his assumption of office. The senior Balarabe Musa has been at the forefront of the campaign for the governor to publicly declare his assets as there were reports that he has over 40 mansions in Abuja and N9billion in his bank accounts.
El-Rufai in a statement signed by his Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, said Waziri’s appointment was part of the current restructuring of his executive team for optimum performance.
He said that the three retired permanent secretaries who have been directed to immediately hand over to the most senior directors in their ministries, were Adamu Makadi (Local Government), Ibrahim Balarabe Musa (Youth, Sports and Culture) and Ishaku K. Shekari (Accountant-General).
Wazairi is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN. He studied Accounting at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and graduated in 1995. Born in Zaria in 1971, Waziri has worked with Shell Petroleum Development Company as internal auditor. He was most recently running his own accounting firm.
According the statement, “the new Accountant-General is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN. He studied Accounting at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and graduated in 1995.
“Born in Zaria in 1971, Waziri has worked with Shell Petroleum Development Company as internal auditor. He was most recently running his own accounting firm.”
The statement added that the governor has expressed the appreciation of the state for the services of the retired officials.
