National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, has appointed his former commissioner for Information and Home Affairs, Muhammed Garba, as his chief of staff.
Garba was a member of Ganduje’s cabinet in Kano throughout his eight-year tenure as governor of Kano.
The appointment of Garba was announced in a statement by one of Ganduje’s media aides, Abubakar Ibrahim.
A former national president of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ), Garba also served as the press secretary to the office of the deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Journalists and civil organisations in Kano commended firmer governor Ganduje for the appointment, describing Garba as an experienced technocrat who has served humanity.
“His (Mr Garba) appointment is certainly the height of putting a round peg in a round hole. More like doing the right thing, at the most appropriate time,” the chairman, of the coalition of northern Nigeria civil society groups, Abdullahi Muhammad, said in a statement.
“The appointment reiterated the competence and resilience of comrade Garba in defending the ideals of his boss, Dr Ganduje at all times, regardless of the backlash arising from deliberate misinformation by detractors.
“Mr Garba is well suited for the job looking at his antecedents and cognate experience spanning over three decades as a reputable journalist.
“The group prays for the success of Dr Ganduje’s comrade Mohammed Garba, to succeed and exceed all expectations in the course of discharging their duties to the fatherland and humanity,” Mr Muhammed said.
