Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Wednesday, October 29, mandated the reinstatement of his Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Yakasai.
Ganduje made this disclosure via the state government Twitter handle @KanostateNg.
“H.E Governor Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR has approved the reinstatement of his Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai from his suspension.”
1st News had reported that Yakasai was suspended for lambasting President Muhammadu Buhari for turning deaf ears to a public outcry concerning the protests against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police Force.
Yakasai had tweeted through his handle, @dawisu, that the President has no empathy for Nigerians by refusing to address the situation.
Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has signed an executive order to reinforce the ban on the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and its activities in the State.
He made this known in a statement by Mr Kelvin Ebiri, Special Assistant (Media) to the Governor.
Ebiri stated that Wike, in a broadcast on Wednesday night, October 28, in Port Harcourt, maintained that Rivers remains the home to all tribes and ethnic nationalities.
He said that the government acknowledges and appreciates the enormous contributions from non-indigenes to the political; social; and economic development of the State.
According to the statement, the State Government will neither accept nor allow any individual or group; from within and also outside to violate the peace; endanger lives as well as property under any guise.
It stated “the State government is opposed to the presence and activities of the legally-proscribed and anarchic IPOB; and whatever it also stands for in Rivers State.
“And so, let it be understood; that we have nothing against all or any specific tribe; and will also continue to live in peace with people of all other tribal extractions residing or doing business in Rivers State.
