Gambari: One of Buhari’s best appointments, says Odigie-Oyegun


Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has described the appointment of Prof. Ibhrahim Gambari as Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari as one of the best made by the President.

Oyegun said the appointment would change governance and diplomatic relationship of the present administration.

He described the former Minister of External Affairs as one of the most experienced Nigerians alive.

Odigie-Oyegun said the international reach of the former United Nations administrator has no equal in the country as he can call any President or Head of State in the world.

He, however, congratulated Buhari for finding an asset like Gambari to add to his administration.

“I am celebrating the appointment of Prof. Gambari. He is one of the most experienced Nigerians alive and he would be of tremendous asset to the administration and to the nation in every respect.

“He has international reach, so he can virtually pick his phone and call any head of state or President in the world.

“We pray for him. His reputation is such that he can’t afford not to make this administration not to succeed. He is a very humble person that will bring value to this administration and will make it succeed where others may have failed

“With his achievements and experience, he is still very, very humble. I congratulate the President for managing to get him.”

The appointment of Gambari from Kwara State as CoS to the President has brought different concerns, as some persons have criticised it based on his relationship with the former military dictators.

The international diplomat replaces the late Abba Kyari.
