The Chairman of the Kano State Gas Pipeline Project Delivery and Gas Industrialisation Committee, Muaz Magaji, has reportedly deleted his Facebook post celebrating the victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Naija News had earlier reported that Taliban – a terrorists group – attacked and taken over Kabul, the Afghanistan capital.
Following the take over of the Middle East country, the group changed renamed the nation ‘Islamic State of Afghanistan.
Magaji, who was first sacked for celebrating the death of the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, and later reappointed to his current position, had described Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan as a win-win.
“It’s a WIN-WIN in Afghanistan today,” he had posted this on his Facebook page while reacting to a story in Daily News Hausa, announcing the Taliban government in Afghanistan.
The post shared by over 20 persons with over 140 comments and 500 likes had now been deleted, obviously after a lot of backlash from Nigerians on social media.
Magaji became the second government official among members of the ruling All Progressive Congress party who would openly declare support and endorse the terrorist group.
