Ganduje to Yakasai: For criticising Buhari, you are fired


Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has relieved his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Salihu Tanko Yakasai, of his appointment over unguarded social media comments.
This is contained in a statement by Malam Muhammad Garba, the state’s Commissioner for Information on Saturday in Kano.
Garba said the sack was effective with immediate effect.
Salihu is the son of elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai. He criticised the President Muhammadu Buhari administration over the spate of insecurity in the North.
Garba said Salihu was sacked because he failed to differentiate between personal and official position, on matters of public concern and, therefore, could not be allowed to continue to serve in a government he never believed in.
Garba warned all political appointees and public servants to guard against statements capable of generating controversies.
He, however, reaffirmed the commitment of Ganduje to the policies and programmes of the Buhari administration.
Salihu Yakasai was in 2020 relieved of his appointment for a similar offence, but was reinstated after intervention by some highly placed citizens, with an assurance that he will not repeat same.
