The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu has relieved his personal assistant, Alhaji Khuzaimah Osman of his post.
Alhaji Osman has also been suspended from acting as an officer of the National Chief Imam’s office with immediate effect.
A statement issued by the secretary to the Chief Imam’s Advisory Board, Alhaji Ali Kadiri said “His Eminence the National Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu in Consultation with His Advisory Board has indefinitely suspended Alhaji Khuzaimah Osman from acting as an officer of the National Chief Imam Office with immediate effect”.
“Alhaji Khuzaimah Osman henceforth ceases to be the P.A. to the national Chief Imam, the Executive Director of Sunset Fund, I.P.A.S.E.C, and all other positions holds on behalf of his Eminence the National Chief Imam”, he added.
Alhaji Khuzaimah’s suspension follows his involvement in a land tussle at Ablekuma after he had gone to acquire the land in the name of the national Chief Imam without his consent.
The Chief Imam however denied claims of owning the land, stressing that “his office has not been created to be exploited for one’s personal gain.”
He warned those using his name and office for personal ventures to desist from that.
The public has therefore been advised against engaging the service of Alhaji Khuzaimah Osman.
Alhaji Khuzaimah Osman has been replaced by Dr. Mohammed Marzuk Abubakar Azindon.
