Umar left instructions for his successor that no change should be made in the Governors appointed by him for one year and that thereafter his successor was free to make whatever changes he deemed necessary in public interest.

When Uthman became the Caliph, Mugheera b Shu'ba was the Governor of Kufa. True to the instructions of Umar, Uthman allowed the (Governors appointed by Umar to continue in their office. After the expiry of one year, Uthman deposed Mugheera and appointed Sa'ad b Abi Waqas as the Governor of Kufa.
