Ganduje sacks Tanko Yakasai again for critiquing Buhari, father says son arrested, DSS denies arrest

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has sacked his Media aide, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai for asking President Buhari’s resignation over his failure to tackle widespread abductions in the country.

The state commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, who conveyed the governor’s directive in a statement Saturday, said the sack is with immediate effect.

He said the aide had failed to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public.

“The aide had failed to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern and therefore cannot be allowed to continue to serve in a government he does not believe,” Garba says.

Ganduje also warned political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing superfluous controversy.

Recall that Yakasai was earlier suspended by Ganduje after his remark about Buhari during the #EndSARS protest but was reinstated weeks after.

Tanko-Yakasai who has since been arrested was sacked over his continued unguarded comments and utterances which are deemed contrary to the stand of the (APC) government which he is serving.

Earlier today, Salihu was arrested after demanding Buhari’s resignation over the failure of his government to arrest widespread abductions in the country in a tweet on Friday.

Salihu’s father, the famous politician, Tanko Yakasai confirmed his son’s arrest saying he was arrested on his way to a barbing saloon.

He said Salihu is being detained by security operatives.

Tanko Yakasai said he is not sure of the location where his son is being held but he is certain that security operatives are the ones holding him.

Salihu criticized the Buhari government when news broke that 317 schoolgirls of Government Girls School were abducted on Friday.

Salihu called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to either deal with bandits in the country or resign.

However, the Department of State Services (DSS) has denied arresting Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, the DSS State Director, Muhammad Alhassan told the media that, “we have not arrested or even invited Salihu, don’t forget he is our friend, sometimes, he advises us on issues of critical Security situations in Kano”.

He was arrested on Saturday after demanding Buhari’s resignation over the failure of his government to arrest widespread abductions in the country.

Tanko Yakasai said he is not sure of the location where his son is being held but he is certain that security operatives are the ones holding him.
