Nigerian governor sacks media aide for criticising President Buhari

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state in February sacked his special adviser on media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, for making a statement termed critical to the Buhari administration.

Yakasai’s sack was announced by the state commissioner for information, Malam Muhammad Garba, on Saturday, February 27.

He said the termination of Yakasai’s appointment was with immediate effect. The commissioner stated that the aide was relieved of his duties over his continued unguarded comments and utterances which are deemed contrary to the stand of the (APC) government which he was serving.

The Kano governor's comment on reconciliation comes one week after he said he was ready to reconcile with his Kwankwaso.

Sometime in June 2021, a photo of Ganduje stepping on the poster of Kwankwaso during a political rally in Kano state surfaced online.
