Jonathan Fires Gulak,

Former Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters


Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak has been sacked.

Gulak’s sack was announced in a tweet by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Dr. Reuben Abati.

According to Abati, “President Goodluck Jonathan has terminated the appointment of his Special Adviser (Political), Alhaji Ahmed A. Gulak with immediate effect.”

“President Jonathan thanks Alhaji Gulak for his services to the present administration and wishes him success in his future endeavours, it said.”

The real reasons for Gulak’s sack is still unknown, sources said it may not be unconnected with his recent political misadventure in Akwa Ibom state where he went to set up a structure for Goodluck Jonathan 2015 Campaign without recourse to Governor Godswill Akpabio.

Akpabio loyalists including the State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP had condemned the move.

Gulak, until his sack was also the Director of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation for the 2015 election.

Earlier, he had served as speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly.

He was enmeshed in several controversies especially, his provocative comments against opposition and perceived enemy of the Jonathan administration.
