The Kano State Governor Umar Ganduje has suspended his Special Adviser on Media, Sahilu Tanko Yakasai for lending his voice to support to the ongoing #EndSARS campaign and attacks on President Buhari.
Yakasai who is also the founding curator of the Global Shapers Community, Kano hub had posted on his twitter page saying that “to speak to your own people over issues that are bedevilling them has become something like a favour you are doing to them.”
“To speak to ur own ppl over issues that are bedevilling them has become something like a favour u’re doing to them. Over & over again, u cannot spare 5mins & address the nation to calm them down, the same people u went to the 36 states to beg for their votes, it’s heartbreaking.”
In a statement conveyed by the commissioner for Information under the directives of the Kano state governor, it described the SA’s personal opinion on the trend as an ‘indiscreet comment’ and as a public figure, it would be hard to differentiate between his personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern.
The governor also warned political appointees and public servants to avoid making statements capable of drawing unnecessary controversy and heating up the policy on matters like this.
The SA on Media later tweeted and it reads:
“Whatever u do in life, make sure u never lose ur voice. Speak up against injustice, speak up against inaction, speak up for what u believe in, demand for ur right and never let a temporary position or privilege stop u from standing with the people. Enough is enough! #EndSARS”
