Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has congratulated Professor Ibrahim Gambari on his appointment as the new Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The ruling party said that the appointment of Nigeria’s former Permanent Representative to the United Nations, UN, has demonstrated President Buhari’s avowed commitment to good governance, by bringing on board competent Nigerians from all parts of the world to assist him.
The party said: “Gambari’s experience and suitability for the strategic Office of Chief of Staff, is not in doubt.
“Indeed, Professor Gambari ticks all the boxes as a round peg in a round hole.
“The APC is confident that Gambari, a Prince of Ilorin Emirate, will bring to bear his scholarly intellect, international network, professional and administrative experience, in ensuring the smooth running of the Office of the President, and support the government to provide good governance and successfully deliver the Next Level programmes for the benefit of Nigerians.
“While our great party assures Gambari of needed support and cooperation, we wish him success in his services to our great country and the people.
“Gambari’s appointment is well-thought-out, and speaks volumes of the President’s penchant for excellence”, the APC said in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
