Difference Between SSA &SA by LordMecuzy(m): 8:21pm On Nov 08, 2015
Please Nairalanders what's the difference between a Special Adviser to the Governor and the Senior Special Assistant to a Governor?

Which among them has more influence to the Governor or superiority above the other?

Senior Special Assistant (SSA) is a Superior 'Assistant'. He is lower in rank to Special Adviser (SA). The SA is in the same league/rank with a Cabinet position (Commissioner or Minister as the case may be).

In terms of influence, the SSA has little influence when compared to the SA. Most atimes, the SA is reserved for people that are brilliant and experienced in certain fields. Because their judgement and position usually shapes the action of the Governor/President. For the SSA, someone with little experience but very smart and intelligent can be given the role.

Ideally, the SSA and Special Assistant roles should be reserved for the young and smart, but our 'oga old politicians' them no de gree

Hope that's clear?
