President Muhammadu Buhari’s new Chief of Staff Professor Ibrahim Gambari has said that his loyalty is to Buhari


Also the House of Representative member representing Ekiti, Isin, Irepodun and Oke-Ero Federal Constituency in Kwara, Mr. Tunji Ajuloopin, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari over the appointment of Prof. Ibrahim Gambari as his Chief of Staff (CoS).

Ajuloopin in a statement on Wednesday in Omu-Aran described the President’s decision to appoint Gambari, a seasoned diplomat given his wealth of experience as a well thought out move.

He congratulated Gambari who was pioneer Chancellor of Kwara State University (KWASU) and urged him to see his new office as a veritable platform to bring the country together.

The lawmaker described Gambari as a global citizen whose scholarly work were recognised home and abroad.

Ajuloopin said with the appointment of Gambari and Mrs Faridah Dankaka as the Chairman, Federal Character Commission, the state had had a fair share in the government of Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration.

Gambari, a former Under Secretary General of the United Nations, was the Minister of External Affairs between 1984 and 1985 when Buhari was military head of state.

The 76 yeal old is a professor of repute and a global citizen, who replaced the former Chief of Staff, late Abba Kyari who died in April 17.

Gambari served meritoriously in the United Nations as Under Secretary-General and Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Africa between 1999 and 2005.
