Ibrahim Gambari, a professor of political science and Nigeria’s former permanent representative to the United Nations (UN), will be announced as the new chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari this Wednesday.
He will be presented during the virtual meeting of the federal executive council (FEC). Although his appointment has not been officially announced, sources from the presidency have confirmed that he will replace Abba Kyari, who died from COVID-19 complications last month.
A lot of Nigerians have reacted to the news on social media, saying that Buhari’s government isn’t as youth-inclined as it claims to be.
