The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has sacked his media aide, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, with a action to political appointees and public servants to shun provocative utterances.
His sack was conveyed in a statement issued by State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba on Saturday, few hours after Salihu demanded President Muhammadu Buhari resignation on social Media over the failure by the later to tackle insecurity including kidnappings in Nigeria.
The statement cited unguarded comments and utterances which are deemed contrary to the stand of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led-government which he is serving.
According to the statement, Salihu, failed to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public.
“The aide had failed to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern and therefore cannot be allowed to continue to serve in a government he does not believe,” according to Garba.
Recall that Yakasai was earlier suspended by Ganduje after his remark about Buhari during the #EndSARS protest but was reinstated weeks after.
Earlier today, Salihu was arrested, according to the father, the famous politician, Tanko Yakasai.
