Legit.ng gathered that Ayade also warned the aides against granting or making both radio and television interviews/appearances without his approval.
Governor Ayade said he expects his commissioners to prove their hard work on the field rather than on the social media.
He added that it only the informational commissioner and the special adviser on media and publicity who are saddled with the responsibility of showcasing or publicizing policy statements either on traditional media or social media.
Governor Ayade warned that any appointee that goes against the directive will be severely sanctioned.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Governor Ayade said that Nigerians don’t need the Bible or Qur’an if they imbibe the virtue of humanity as a religion in itself.

Ayade explained that humans need to change the way they relate with each other to make room for a better society.
