The Governor of Kano State, His Excellency, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has suspended his special Adviser on Media, Salihu Yakasai for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari.
Yakasai twitted on his official handle saying the President has no empathy for failing to spare 5mins to address the nation to calm them down, reminding the President that the 36 states voted him into his seat.
Muhammed Garba, the Commissioner for Information to the Kano State Government reacted to Yakasai’s comment calling it “unguarded utterances”.
The statement reads, “Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has suspended his Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, over some unguarded utterances on the person of President Muhammadu Buhari on the social media.
“Malam Muhammad Garba, the state Commissioner for Information who conveyed the Governor’s directive in a statement this afternoon said the suspension was with immediate effect.
“The Governor, therefore warned political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing unnecessary controversy and heating up the polity.”
