Without any formal announcement, the new Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, has resumed duties in the State House this morning.

Gambari, 79, who hails from Ilorin, Kwara State, replaces Malam Abba Kyari, who passed on April 17, while being treated for COVID-19 in Lagos.

He will participate in virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting to be presided over by the president this morning.

The new chief of staff who was a Minister of External Affairs during the military rule of Buhari in 1984, was seen in the Presidential Villa this morning.

Gambari was received on arrival at the Presidential Villa by the State House Permanent Secretary, Mallam Tijani Umar and the Director of Protocol, Alhaji Yakubu Ahmed.

Others who joined Umar and Ahmed to receive Gambari were the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs, Office of the Vice President, Amb. Abdullahi Gwari and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media, Malam Garba Shehu.

The four men led Gambari into the Council Chambers.
