The recently reinstated Special Adviser on Media to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, Salihu Tanko, has again chided the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government at all levels, calling for their resignation.
Salihu was once suspended by Ganduje last year for an “unguarded utterance” on the person of President Muhammadu Buhari on the social media platform.
In a series of new tweets yesterday on his verified twitter handle Peacock@dawisu; he said: “Clearly, we as APC government, at all levels, have failed Nigerians in the number one duty we were elected to do which is to secure lives and properties. Not a single day goes by without some sort of insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign.”
“Norm indeed, each time another tragedy happens, we lament, condemn, create 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? SMDH.
“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,” he added.
Replying to a tweet also, Salihu said “I completely agree. Hypocrisy is in our DNA. Imagine what’s happening in the North now was under GEJ or OBJ, sai dai ka ji ana makiyin arewa ne, makiyin musulmi ne, but here we are, being ravaged by all sorts of insecurity but no collective rage, sai useless lamentations”.
Salihu drew the displeasure of his boss Ganduje when he wrote during the #EndSARS protests that “I’ve never seen a govt with zero empathy like that of Buhari.”
