Kano governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has sacked Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, his spokesman, for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement on Saturday, Muhammad Garba, state commissioner for information, said the dismissal is because of Yakasai’s “continued unguarded comments”.

He said 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.

The governor also warned political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing superfluous controversy.

The statement reaffirmed the commitment of Governor Ganduje to the policies and programmes of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall that Salihu Tanko Yakasai had on Friday morning took to his verified twitter handle @dawisu to tweet in reaction to the latest abduction of about 317 female boarding students from Government Girls Secondary School in Jangebe, Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

In the tweet, Salihu called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Governors to resign or deal decisively with the terrorists and bandits terriorizing the country.

He also said the APC governments at all levels have failed particularly in the primary responsibility to secure the lives of the electorates who brought them into power.

Recall also that sometimes in October last, Yakasai was suspended and later reinstated over what was termed unguarded utterances against the President during the #ENDSARS protest.
