The Zamfara State Government has asked political or public office holders to desist from posting their appointment letters on social media.
Those who flout the order will be sanctioned, government says.
In a statement, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of information, Sani Nassarawa, said the state government had noticed the habit of posting and sharing government appointment letters on social media platforms by some political appointees.
He said, “Government noticed that such behaviour by those appointees is to express their joy and happiness over the appointments. Such an act is, however, contrary to public service rules and can no longer be tolerated.
“The state government wants to make it categorically clear that henceforth, anybody found posting or sharing any government confidential records and documents or information in public, particularly on social media platforms, will be considered as someone violating the public service rules that prohibit such act and will be decisively dealt with, accordingly.”
