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.
