The Katsina State Governor Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari has approved the appointments of 4 new media aides.
Unsurprisingly, the Governor appointed Abdulhadi Ahmad Bawa as the substantive Senior Special Assistant on New Media -the position that has been vacant since the departure of Maiwada Dammalan.
Three other Special Assistants where also appointed to cover the 3 senatorial zones in the state.
The Katsina State government has lately been under heavy criticism for detaining three new media users in the state for what they called ‘spreading false information in the state capable of inciting public disturbances’.
Even before then, the government has been accuse for not having proper communication channels of information dissemination especially among the users of ‘social media’ in the state.
Bellow is the list of the newly appointees:
Mal. AbdulHadi Ahmad Bawa,
SSA New Media
SA New Media, Katsina Senatorial Zone
Yusuf Lawal Kankia (Yulaks KY)
SA New Media, Daura Senatorial Zone
Mohammed Garba MG
SA New Media Funtua Senatorial Zone
