Ganduje’s Aide leaves Nigeria

Share this story:

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, immediate past Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Tanko Yakassai, has relocated overseas.

Newsmen had reported Ganduje relieved Tanko Yakasai of his appointment over continued unguarded comments and utterances deemed contrary to the stand of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government which he was serving.

Yakasai was earlier suspended by Ganduje after his remark on Buhari during the #EndSARS protest but was reinstated weeks after.

In February, the ex-aide called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to either deal with bandits or resign.

Yakasai was picked up by the Department of State Services (DSS) shortly after his criticism but the DSS said he was picked due to “issues beyond the expression of opinions on social media”.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Yakasai, popularly known as Dawisu, said “goodbye” to Nigeria. While he did not indicate where he was heading to, he shared images of himself at the airport about flying out with Qatar Airways.

“Japa….. Goodbye Naija! Alhamdulilah!” he tweeted. His post elicited a flurry of reactions on social media.
