Kaduna dismisses 8 over land, Hajj scandal
The Kaduna State government has dismissed five directors from two of its agencies for tampering with the layout for the revised Millenium City layout.
Three staff of the state Local Government Service Commission were also dismissed for defrauding pilgrims who paid for participation in the Hajj.
Three directors were affected at the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency (KASUPDA) and two others from Kaduna State Geographic Information Service (KADGIS).
The letters of dismissal signed by Mrs. Grace Yusuf Bature on behalf of the General Manager KASUPDA, Saratu M.Haruna, indicated that those affected included Charles Akau Ibrahim, the director of urban planning and research, Adamu Aliyu Nuhu, director development control, and Philemon Mairabo, director urban planning and research.
Their sacking followed the State Executive Council’s deliberations over a report of the committee that investigated the role of some staff of the former Ministry of Land, Surveys and Country Planning, KASUPDA and some traditional rulers in distorting the revised Millennium City layout.
