In a statement sent to Ejes Gist NewsOnline on Saturday, State Commissioner Information  Malam Muhammad Garba, who conveyed the Governor’s Directive, said the sack was immediately effective.

This comes just hours after Yakasai was allegedly apprehended by Department of State Services operatives (DSS).

According to the commissioner, the aide failed to distinguish between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern, and thus cannot continue to serve in a government in which he has no faith.

Political appointees and public servants were also warned by the governor to guard against making statements that could generate superfluous controversy.

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

Yakasai was previously suspended by Ganduje following a remark he made about Buhari during the #EndSARS protest, but was reinstated a few weeks later.

Salihu called on the government headed by President Buhari to either deal with bandits in the country or resign.

Tanko-Yakasai made the remarks on Friday in response to the kidnapping of students at the Government Girls Secondary School in Jangebe, Talata Mafara Local Government Area, Zamfara State.
