Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, has relieved his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Salihu Tanko of his appointment for making unguarded social media comment.

This is contained statement by Malam Muhammad Garba, the state’s Commissioner for Information on Saturday in Kano.

He said Tanko was sacked because he failed to differentiate between personal and official position, on matters of public concern and therefore could not be allowed to continue to serve government he never believed in.

Garba warned all appointees and public servants to guard against statements capable of generating controversies.

He, however, reaffirmed the commitment of Ganduje to the and programmes of the administration of President Buhari.
