Truth is Buhari has so many surprises in his sleeve. Wouldn't have ever thought someone from Kwara will be his chief of staff. That office is like the soul of the president. I am now believing the news I read few days back that a new cabal is cropping up.

To those who called president Buhari an ethnic bigot, bubu don surprise you oooo.
And to those who says he is too found of old people, baba don show say una dey correct cos the man na 75 years old.

My conclusion, he has a good biography and I pray he pledges his allegiance to both the president and the nation as a whole. May God help you do good and not be caught up in the politics and become useless AMEN.

And may he have the courage to tell the president whenever he is making a wrong decision or being advised to make a wrong decision.

And to those wishing Buhari dead, just pray you live as old as him o cos the man no dey die yet o and people that thought they will outlive him are gone and some terribly sick now ooooooo. May we all live long and may God bless the federal republic of NIGERIA. AMEN.

And to think he will go to the territory and abode of SARAKI to pick his new chief of staff baffles me ooooo.

Biography.

Ibrahim Agboola Gambari, CFR (born November 24, 1944, in Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria) is a Nigerian scholar and diplomat. He was Minister for External Affairs between 1984 and 1985. Gambari has been appointed by the secretary-general of United Nations Ban Ki-moon and the chairperson of the African Union Commission as Joint African Union-United Nations Special Representative for Darfur effective from 1 January 2010. He is currently the Special Adviser on the International Compact with Iraq and Other Issues for the Secretary-General of the United Nations.

On March 4, 2013, Ibrahim Gambari was named by the Kwara State Governor, AbdulFatah Ahmad, as the pioneer chancellor of the Kwara State University, making him the ceremonial head of the university who presides over convocations to award degrees and diplomas and also supports the vision and mission of the university in all respects, including fundraising, social, economic and academic goals. As a university that continues to gain credence as a community development university with world class standards, the selection of Gambari is expected to give the institution additional international boost and recognition. Gambari is also co-chair of the Albright-Gambari Commission.

Gambari began his teaching career in 1969 at City University of New York before working at University of Albany. Later, he taught at Ahmadu Bello University, in Zaria, Kaduna State, the second largest university in Africa. From 1986 to 1989, he was Visiting Professor at three universities in Washington, D.C.: Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Georgetown University and Howard University. He has also been a research fellow at the Brookings Institution also in Washington D.C. and a Resident Scholar at the Bellagio Study and Conference Center, the Rockefeller Foundation-run center in Italy. He was accorded, honoris causa, the title of Doctor of Humane Letters (D.Hum.Litt.) from the University of Bridgeport. He is a member of the Johns Hopkins University's Society of Scholars. He was decorated with the title of Commander of the Federal Republic (CFR) by the Government of Nigeria.

His brother, Alhaji Ibrahim Kolapo Sulu Gambari, is the Emir of Ilorin.

In 1990 when the Gulf Crisis was being discussed at the UN, 2 of the 3 officials at the high table were from Nigeria. General Joe Garba was the president of the UN General Assembly at the time and Professor Gambari was also on the high table. Below is a picture of Professor Gambari and General Garba.

Kai Buhari, real cat with nine lives, very unpredictable, he beats both the wailers and the zombies expectations. Right now I, like every other person out there don't understand the reason for this move. In a chess game, this would have been a checkmate.

Since the demise of Kyari, Buhari have been making sound decisions. Buhari might be a good man after all

Congratulations to Prof. Ibrahim Agboola Gambari. Honestly, nobody saw this coming. He’s definitely not a bad choice and not the type of person that can be controlled by various interest struggling to hijack the presidency.

However, I’m concerned about his age. I hope he still has a lot of energy to run the office of the chief of staff at 76. I also hope he has no relationship or loyalty to the Saraki family of Ilorin.

What a categorical statement!

PMB has shown that everything was wrong with his hitherto arrangements at the seat of power. Buhari refused to align with any side of the cabals this time. We hope he will be able to reconcile the warring sides.

I wish the new man all the best in his new assignment
