Gov. Ganduje has sacked his Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai aka Dawisu for criticising the Buhari administration and calling for the president resignation.
Salihu had tweeted using the handle @Dawisu “Clearly, we as APC government, at all levels, have failed Nigerians in the number one duty we were elected to do which is to secure lives and properties. Not a single day goes by without some sort of insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign, ”
According to reports, Ganduje has warned Salihu to stop making controversial comments over public issues.
You recall that RainSMediaRadio reported earlier today that Salihu was arrested by DSS over this same tweet.
However, his father had said Salihu was arrested by DSS operatives on his way to the barbershop.
Muhammad Garba who is the Kano State Commissioner announced that Salihu has been relieved of his duty as Special Adviser on Media with immediate effect.
Garba said Yakasai was sacked “over his continued unguarded comments and utterances which are deemed contrary to the stand of the All Progressive Congress government which he is serving.
“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 in,” the statement partly reads.
Meanwhile, in 2020, Gov. Ganduje had warned his political appointees and public servants to desist from making unguarded comments
It was also gathered that in 2020 Ganduje suspended Yakasai after the media aide criticized President Buhari’s way of handling the #EndSARS protests against police brutality.
