Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has warned all his aides from insulting President Muhammadu Buhari as such utterances will attract immediate sack.
Umahi gave the warning on Thursday, September 26 in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on New Media, Mr. Francis Nwaze in Abakaliki.
Umahi said castigating or abusing President Buhari or any governor in Nigeria doesn’t add value to his administration.
It went further to state that for those who want to insult President Buhari should first leave Umahi’s government before throwing unnecessary stone.
The statement reads, “The Ebonyi State Governor, David Nweze Umahi, has prohibited any of his political appointees from castigating or abusing the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari.
“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 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?”
