Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has suspended Yakasai over his “unguarded utterances on the person of President Muhammadu Buhari on the social media platform.

Ganduje had also sacked former Commissioner of Works for mocking late Abba Kyari who died of COVID-19. The sacked commissioner later contracted coronavirus but survived.

Yakasai’s indefinite suspension was contained in a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, saying “the suspension is with immediate effect.

The Governor said though the media aide owned up to the indiscreet comment as his personal opinion, as a public figure, it will be difficult to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern.

Ganduje warned political appointees and public servants in Kano to guard against making statements capable of drawing unnecessary controversy and heating up the polity.

The Governor said he is committed to the policies and programmes of the Buhari administration.
