The former Political Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, was sacked for his arrogance and irrational disposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Adamu Mu?azu said on Wednesday.
Mu?azu spoke in Abuja while hosting some members of the Akwa Ibom State PDP executive committee.
The party chair said he had agreed with the President that there would be no room for arrogant officials in the cabinet, adding that they must remain focused and committed to retain their positions.
Gulak was sacked on Tuesday without the Presidency stating reasons for the action.
Gulak was in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, last week to inaugurate the Goodluck Support Group (GSG) with a faction of the PDP.
Governor Godswill Akpabio objected to Gulak?s action, saying he was not informed of the visit by the ex-presidential aide. The governor also protested that Gulak met with party chieftains who were opposed to his administration.
He urged the President to punish Gulak. Mu?azu told the delegation that no contestant for a political office would be given automatic ticket, stressing that he was in no position to help anybody secure automatic ticket.
The chairman of Akwa Ibom PDP, Chief Paul Ekpo, had earlier sought the party?s endorsement of the decision of the state?s chapter to pick the governorship candidate from the Eket Senatorial District.
The state chapter of the party has been polarised by Akpabio?s decision to zone the 2015 governorship ticket to the Eket Senatorial District.
