Lauretta Onochie who took to Twitter to label PDP Presidential aspirants as sponsors of Fulani herdsmen, has been slammed by a Kano Government official.
Salihu Tanko Yakassai who is a special adviser on media to Kano state government, prayed for the sack of Lauretta Onochie who is a media aide to President Buhari on social media. According to the Kano government official, politics is about decorum and Lauretta Onochie lacks it.

This is not the first time Lauretta Onochie will be called out over her comment. Few months ago, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) called on President Muhammadu Buhari to restrain his aide, Lauretta Onochie from alleged use of vulgar abuse and unprintable names against others with absolute recklessness.
The Christian body condemned Onochie’s description of CAN as “CAN of worms” on her Twitter account.
Onochie had tweeted, “Prime Minister Theresa May, a Christian, is in a mosque doing what humans go to do in a place of worship. She knows that her God is the same one also called Allah. Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN of worms, here’s a great lesson in love and godliness, not hatred & anger!”.
But Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, spokesman to CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, in statement, said the failure of the presidency to call Onochie to order was capable of making the body to believe that she is expressing the mind of the presidency, her employer.
He said: “Instead of asking CAN leadership to borrow a leaf from the British Prime Minister, Onochie should have directed her advice to her principal to emulate his British counterpart who gives all the citizens under her watch a sense of belonging and adequate security, irrespective of their religious, ethnic and political persuasions.
“CAN counsels this big-mouth social media aide to employ decorum in performing her function, instead of acting like an urchin who has strayed into the corridors of power. She is hereby advised to walk away from the path trodden by Cain and stop embracing Balaam’s blunder for personal profit.
“Let it be restated once again that CAN will never cease speaking truth to power, irrespective of the unguarded utterances by Onochie.”
