The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje has ordered the immediate suspension of one of his media aides, Salihu Yakasai for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.
Yakasai, the Special Adviser on Media to Ganduje got the Governor angry for speaking against the administration of President Buhari over the handling of the #Endsars protest.
The media aide condemned Buhari for his failure to address Nigerians despite taking to the streets and on social media to demand the immediate dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force.
His outbursts came shortly before the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu announced on Sunday that the SARS unit has been scrapped with immediate effect.
However, reacting to the outburst by his media aide, the Kano State Governor in a statement on Sunday by the State Commissioner for Information, Muhammed Garba described the position of the media aide as unbecoming of a public official in a matter of national importance.
The statement added the aide’s comment is capable of heating up the polity and Ganduje has therefore approved his immediate suspension based on his comments on his Twitter handle on #Endsars protest.
