Jonathan fires Ahmed Gulak
President Goodluck Jonathan has fired his Special Adviser (Political), Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, with immediate effect.
Presidential spokesman Reuben Abati said in a statement yesterday that Jonathan thanked Gulak for his services to the present administration and wished him success in his future endeavours.
He said a replacement for Gulak, who hails from Adamawa State, would be announced in due course.
Meanwhile, Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has reacted to the sack of Gulak, saying it should teach the former political adviser a lesson about the transient nature of power.
Nyako’s spokesman Ahmad Sajo said he sympathised with Gulak, who he said turned himself into the spokesman of the presidency instead of discharging his responsibility as a presidential advisor.
“But today, the real presidential spokesman has spoken by showing the exit route to him (Gulak) unceremoniously,” he stated.
