In the wake of his termination, in what looked more like a mirage than reality, nemesis caught up with Toni kan as he lost a juicy appointment as the media aide/spokesperson to the Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management & Social Development, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq.
APC supporters rejected his appointment as they protest on Twitter that he was not a party member.
Why cant Toni Kan be media aide? He is well qualified. Professional. Ethical. Rain or Fire he stands firm – M.A and B.A English literature from the universities of Lagos and Jos.
Best Graduating student both times.

That was Toni Kan’s outburst on his Twitter account after he began to trend on the microblogging site for the reason of his past actions and in-actions.
The outcry was not based on whether or not the prolific writer merits the appointment or not but on the grounds that he had openly declared support for the opposition leading to the election of President Buhari.
The Lagosian Pangolosian, Toni, was said to have made denigatory comments about President Muhammadu Buhari during the campaign.
On this note, APC supporters tend to opine that a party faithful would be more suited to hold such position.
Based on this development, Toni Kan had taken to Twitter to relieve himself of the appointment.
The Lagosian Pangolosian said;
At the behest of HM @Sadiya_farouq @fmhdsd, in the wake of the outcry on twitter over my engagement as Media Consultant I wish to decline the position of Spokesperson. I thank her for the opportunity and wish the ministry all the best.
This definitely brings an end to an appointment which lasted no longer than 48 hours.
