David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi state, says any of his aides that insults President Muhammadu Buhari or any governor will be sacked.
David Nweze, special assistant to the governor on new media, quoted Umahi as saying this in a statement on Thursday.
The governor said castigating the president and any governor does not add value to his administration.
Umahi said, henceforth, any of his aides who insults the president would be sacked immediately.
“The Ebonyi State Governor, David Nweze Umahi, has prohibited any of his political appointees from castigating or abusing the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
“Doing such to any government or any governor in this country has no value to add to his administration.
“The Governor has advised that anyone who wishes to throw an unnecessary stone against any of the above-mentioned leaders, should, in his or her own best interest, get ready to leave his government as such will attract immediate sacking.
“Any posting, henceforth, against the President, any governor or government from any of his appointees will attract immediate termination of appointment by him.
“If you want to castigate the President, his government or any governor, you must leave Governor Umahi’s government first. How does such castigation help the governor’s government?”
Within the last one month, Umahi has sacked two of his appointees (chief press secretary and commissioner for information and state orientation).
Recently, Umahi fired his chief press secretary for misrepresentation.
