Raliya Kashim, a senior staff member of the Bauchi State-owned Abubakar Tatari Ali Polytechnic, has been suspended by the institution’s management for supporting All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Maimako Baraya, a spokesman for the polytechnic, signed the letter announcing the suspension.
The main opposition, the Peoples’s Democratic Party (PDP), is in charge of Bauchi State.
Kashim works as the polytechnic’s deputy general manager of consulting services.
She was aware of the state’s public service law prohibiting civil servants from participating in party politics, according to Mr Baraya’s letter.
Baraya was quoted to have said in the letter, “The employee recently posted videos containing campaign materials of the presidential and the governorship candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is a clear violation of the code of ethics for public servants.”
“We wish to assure the general public that there would be no sacred cow, and it will never be intimidated by the activities of political jobbers, fifth columnists and enemies of the state.”
