Kebbi Gov. Nasiru Idris sacks aide for ‘posting gay content’ on WhatsApp status
Kebbi State governor, Nasiru Idris, has sacked Babangida Sarki, his special adviser on youths, for reportedly posting homosexual content on his Whatsapp status over the weekend.
Ahmed Idris, the governor’s media aide, announced the development on Monday, July 10.
According to Premium Times, he said: “The Executive Governor of Kebbi State, Nasiru Idris, relieved his Special Adviser on Youths of his appointment, Babangida Sarki.
The sacking of the S.A. was a sequel to an indecent posting he made on his WhatsApp status.
The Governor, who was enraged by the obnoxious development, said the aide trampled on the moral and social ethos of the Kebbi society, which is largely Islamic.
The governor vowed that his administration would not condone any of such acts that denigrate the morality and integrity of the people of the state.
The Governor also cautioned other public officers against making such heinous postings in their social media handles and other public fora.”
Mr Sarki allegedly uploaded homosexual content on his WhatsApp status over the weekend. The governor, still attending Hajj in Saudi Arabia, sacked Mr Sarki when he learnt of the incident.
The governor’s media aide ruled out the possibility of Sarki’s phone being hacked, adding that the former aide was interrogated and “confessed that he uploaded the pictures himself”.
