- Advertisment -

An inside source has confirmed to MAP NEWS that the appointment of Prof. Gambari as the new Chief of Staff of President Buhari would be made official on Wednesday, “it’s ninety percent sure”, the source hinted.

Gambari was appointed to replace dead Abba Kyari but his appointment is yet to be officially announced.

The emir, in a statement by his media aide, Abdulazeez Arowona, expressed his gratitude to the president for the appointment.

He also described the appointment as a “great honour to the entire people of Ilorin Emirate and Kwarans at large.”

Mr Gambari was the external affairs minister (1984-1985) under Mr Buhari’s spell as a military head of state.

He was Nigeria’s envoy to the UN in 1995 and also served as the head of a committee organising peace talks between Nigeria’s government under late Umaru Yar’Adua and the Niger Delta militants, following opposition from the oil-rich region.

In January 2010, he resumed another role as the head of the African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur, which became the world’s largest peacekeeping mission. Mr Gambari left that role in July 2012.

He is currently chairman of Abuja-based thinktank, Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development, which he founded.
