Writer Toni Kan has declined the position of spokesperson to Sadiya Umar Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

This was after the appointment was criticized by some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to the APC members, Toni Kan doesn’t deserve the appointment because he’s not a member of the party which he has been a critic of in the past.

Rather undaunted by the pressure mounted on him for his dismissal as at Tuesday, Kan had on Twitter insisted that he is not backing down because he is a Nigerian well-qualified to take up the post.

Bowing to the outcry which trended on social media, Toni Kan tweeted:

“At the behest of HM @Sadiya_farouq @fmhdsd, in the wake of the outcry on twitter over my engagement as Media Consultant I wish to decline the position of Spokesperson. I thank her for the opportunity and wish the ministry all the best”.
