Bashir Ahmad Rejoins Buhari’s Cabinet

President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed his former Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, as Special Assistant to the President on Digital Communications.

The appointment was confirmed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, in a letter addressed to Ahmad, dated 20th July 2022.

According to Mustapha, the appointment took effect on 19th July 2022.

Ahmad had resigned his previous position as Personal Assistant to the President in line with the presidential directive urging all political office holders wishing to contest elective office to resign.

The presidential media aide lost his bid to secure the ticket of the All Progressives Congress at the party’s primaries for Gaya, Ajingi, and Albasu Federal Constituency.

Ahmad had frowned at the way the party’s primary was conducted, saying it was fraught with fraud.

All the cabinet ministers and presidential aides except Ahmad, who resigned to participate in the APC primaries but failed to secure the party tickets had since been replaced by the president.
