Great Victory For Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, As Heavy Commotion Hits Kano State Governor’s Camp, Aides Throw Deadly Blows In Public

According to Vanguard, the Special Adviser to the Kano State Governor on New Media, Salihu Yakasai, yesterday, said it will be foolhardy of him to vacate his former office for the Director General, Media Strategy, Aminu Yassar, a junior officer.

Yakasai, who was elevated to his current position, on February 6, explained that in the hierarchy of government, an Adviser remained the most senior, saying: “It is equivalent to a Commissioner, while the Director General is equivalent to a Permanent Secretary.”

Recall, that Governor Umar Ganduje, had on February 6, reshuffled his media team, elevating Yakasai, the former Director General, Media, replacing him with his former Chief Press Secretary, Yassar.

Since the shuffle, a cold war had developed between Yassar and his former boss, Yakasai, over the control of the official facility of the Director General.

Yakasai said: “Any office can be assigned to any official; it is at the discretion of the government, and as I said, it was assigned to me; I did not forcibly take it.

“It is not my father’s property. If today, I am directed to vacate it, before you say ‘Vanguard’, I will be out of there.

“I was elevated to the position of Special Adviser to the Governor on New Media, and I remain an integral part of the Governor’s media team.

“In the course of my duties since my appointment about two years ago, I have maintained a cordial relationship with all my team and still do, and we will continue to work together to create awareness around the activities of the Governor.”

Post-Nigeria recalls that the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the former Governor of the State, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, have been at loggerheads since the former succeeded the latter as Governor of the State, with Governor Ganduje recently stopping Senator Kwankwaso from visitng his Constituency in Kano State untill further notice.
