A member of the President’s media team Johannes Tobi has in a tweet said freedom of speech for public officers isn’t absolute.
Tobi backed his opinion with the stipulations made by the Public Service Rules book.
He said: “Without permission, a public officer cannot express opinion on questions affecting the admin, public policy, defense or military resources.”
Also, concerning Aisha Alhassan‘s public support of Atiku Abubakar, the Public Service Rules book states: “Also no public officer is to indicate publicly his support of or opposition to any party candidate or policy.”
