Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has suspended his special adviser on media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai over a tweet he posted on social media criticizing Buhari administration’s handling of #ENDSARS protest.

Yakasai tweeted, “I’ve never seen a government with zero empathy like that of president Buhari. So many times, when his people are going through difficult time and expect some sort of tap on [the] shoulder to reassure them that he is in charge, but he failed to do so.

Kano state information commissioner Muhammad Garba announced Yakasai’s suspension.

“Though the media aide has own up the indiscreet comment as his personal opinion, but that as a public figure, it will be difficult to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern,” he said.

“The governor therefore warned political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing unnecessary controversy and heating up the polity,” the statement added.
