Yakasai, who tweeted through his handle, @dawisu, had slammed President Buhari for allegedly showing “zero empathy” to the plight of Nigerians whenever the need arose.

Dawisu lamented that the President had constantly failed to show emphaty with the citizens and would often wait to be begged to do so when things were wrong in the country.

The governor therefore suspended Dawisu with immidate effect, and warned political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing unnecessary controversy and heating up the polity.
