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 dismissal is based on Yakasai’s “continued unguarded comments and utterances which are deemed contrary to the stand of the All Progressive Congress (APC) government which he is serving.”

The governor accused Yakasai of failing 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.”

“The governor also warned political appointees and public servants to guard against making statements capable of drawing superfluous controversy,” the statement added.

The statement reaffirmed the commitment of Governor Ganduje to the policies and programmes of the administration of President Buhari.

KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Dawisu was also arrested by the DSS on Friday, hours after he called on President Buhari to check Nigeria’s worsening insecurity or resign.
