Ibrahim Gambari not on social media – Bashir Ahmad

Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, who was announced on Wednesday as President Muhammadu Buhari’s new chief of staff, has no social media account, a presidential aide has said.

Personal Assistant on New Media to the President, Bashir Ahmad, issued a disclaimer early Thursday on Twitter, saying all existing accounts in the new chief of staff’s name are fake.

“All the twitter accounts bearing Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff to President @MBuhari are fake, the new CoS doesn’t have an account on twitter or on any social media platform. If he wishes to have one, it will be communicated properly,” he wrote.

A former minister of foreign affairs, Gambari replaces Abba Kyari who died in April of COVID-19 complications.

The professor of political science, a native of Ilorin, Kwara State, was minister of external affairs when Buhari was military head of state between 1983 and 1985.
