Politics Without Bitterness As Ganduje And Dawisu’s Convoys Greet Each Other

Ganduje And Dawisu's Convoys Greet Each Other

Salihu Tanko Yakasai (Peacock @dawisu) was the special adviser on new media to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano. Like his father Tanko Yakasai (who was Shagari’s presidential liaison to the National Assembly), he is very outspoken. He doesn’t hesitate to speak his mind. This has often gotten him into trouble (just like his father often got into trouble).

He annoyed some Kanawa because he defended his boss, Abdullahi Ganduje during the dollargate scandal.

He also annoyed some Kanawa because of his criticism and mocking of the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, when the Emir had problems with Governor Ganduje.

He was suspended from office in October 2020 for criticising President Buhari over the End SARS protest.

He was reinstated a few weeks later.

However, he was sacked in February 2021 and detained by the DSS for criticising President Buhari again and asking him to resign after some school children were kidnapped by bandits.
