The media aide to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano sttae, Salihi Tanko-Yakassai, has been arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service.
An official of the state government had on Saturday tweeted, “Alhamdulillah we just confirmed @dawisu is at DSS office.”
The media aide to Governor Ganduje had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to address the activities of bandits in the country or resign.
Tanko-Yakasai stated this on Friday while reacting to the abduction of schoolgirls at Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
He noted that the government has failed in its responsibilities following the abduction of students in Nigeria schools.
Tanko-Yakasai further stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress has failed Nigerians.
He wrote on Twitter: “Clearly, we as APC government, at all levels, have failed Nigerians in the number 1 duty we were elected to do which is to secure lives & properties. Not a single day goes by without some insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign.”
“Each time another tragedy happens, we lament, condemn, create a hashtag, the govt pretends to do something, no concrete steps to prevent reoccurrence, and then we repeat the process. To what end? Where are those saddled with the responsibility?”
“Just last week, it was #freekagaraboys, today we have a new hashtag, #RescueJangebeGirls; who knows tomorrow what hashtag we will come up with? Perhaps one for ourselves when we get caught up in one of these daring attacks. This is sad & heartbreaking; I feel helpless & hopeless.”
Recall that the governor’s aide was once suspended by his principal for attacking President Buhari during the #EndSARS protest but was reinstated weeks after.
