Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has hailed the appointment of Prof. Ibrahim Gambari as the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sanwo-Olu, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, on Wednesday, congratulated Gambari, describing him as the right man for the job.
He described Gambari as a man of impeccable character, right temperament, leadership and knowledge.
”The choice of Professor Gambari as the successor to the late Mallam Abba Kyari by President Muhammadu Buhari is commendable.
“Gambari is not just an academic or a diplomat, he is a fine gentleman, a decent Nigerian who epitomises the Nigerian dream.
”My personal and official interactions with Professor Gambari have brought about nothing but meaningful development. He is a man of many parts”.
”I do not doubt that Professor Gambari’s appointment is a major win for the presidency and the nation as a whole, especially coming at a time when Nigeria is confronting a major challenge with a global outlook,” he said.
Sanwo-Olu urged Nigerians to support the new Chief of Staff, as the nation has a lot of benefit from his varied skills.
