Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has relieved his Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai of his appointment over his continued unguarded comments and utterances, which are deemed contrary to the stand of the All Progressive Congress (APC) government which he is serving.
The Kano state government made the disclosure in a statement signed by the commissioner of information, Mallam Muhamad Garba.
He said the sack takes effect immediately.
He further reaffirmed the commitment of Governor Ganduje to the policies and programmes of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“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.”
“We are warning political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing superfluous controversy.”
