The Special Adviser to the Kano State Governor on Media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai has been relieved of his appointment by the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje over what was termed as “his continued unguarded comments and utterances which are deemed contrary to the stand of the All Progressive Congress (APC) government which he is serving”, Njenje Media News reports.
Kano State commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, while conveying the governor’s directive in a statement on Saturday, said the sack is with immediate effect.
The statement noted that the media 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 igniting superfluous controversy.
The statement reaffirmed the commitment of Governor Ganduje to the policies and programmes of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
