Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina state has sacked his Commissioner for Education, Professor Halimatu Idris.
This was made known on Thursday in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Media, Abdu Labaran.
Masari said: “Her contributions to the development of education in particular in the state cannot be over-emphasised.
“During her term as commissioner, schools were rehabilitated and upgraded, new ones were constructed, teachers were trained and the atmosphere made more conducive for learning and teaching.
“However, as political activities for the 2019 general elections are about to commence, it becomes imperative for government to bring more active politicians on board to fasten activities of governance.”
The governor also wished her Allah’s guidance in her future endeavours.
