EXPOSED: Niger Republic Citizen Nominated As Non-career Ambassador By President Buhari After Claiming To Be From Jigawa State

Mr Ali Mohammed Magashi, one of the recently appointed non-career ambassadors by President Muhammadu Buhari, has been discovered to be originally from Niger Republic and not Jigawa State as claimed, SaharaReporters has gathered.

Magashi's immediate younger brother from same parents, Ahamadou Harouna (aka Denis), is a lawmaker and member of the Convention Democratique et Social, one of the parties backing the incumbent President of Niger Republic, Issoufou Mahamadou.

His late father, Haru Tela, is said to have arrived Nigeria as a refugee in 1972 as a result of drought and subsequent famine that swept across the West Africa Sahel region at the time.

He settled at a village in Jigawa State on the outskirts of Babura, a border town between Nigeria and Niger Republic where Governor Abubakar was born.

It was there that the Jigawa governor met Magashi and formed a friendship that would last till this day.

As a child in Nigeria, the ambassador nominee was known as Ibrahim Haruna but got admission into Government Technical College, Wudil, Kano State, as Ali Mohammed Magashi in 1977 -- he has kept that name till date.

Recall that President Buhari had on July 1, 2020 in a letter sent to the Senate asked for the confirmation of the appointment of 41 non-career ambassadors designate including Magashi.

The Senate, however, confirmed 39 of them and stood down the confirmation of nominees from Niger and Yobe states to resolve what the committee described as a “mixup”.

Despite being from Niger Republic, Magashi sailed through the screening exercise and is set to assume duties as an ambassador for Nigeria.

To achieve this, he cleverly refused providing information about his parents and the primary school he attended during the Senate screening, SaharaReporters gathered.

Sources in Jigawa further disclosed that he was nominated by Governor Abubakar to serve and protect his business interests within and outside Nigeria.

It was reliably scooped that the reason behind this arrangement was to have Magashi posted to Morocco where the Jigawa State governor has a firm through which he imports fertilizers into Nigeria for sale to government at exorbitant prices.

"In the event that he scales through, Governor Abubakar intends to manipulate the Presidency for Magashi to be posted to Morocco.

"Casablanca is the latest business frontier for the governor from where he imports fertilisers and sells to the Nigerian Government among others," one of the sources said.

Calls put across to Magashi for reaction to the findings were not responded to as of the time of this report.

If the Ships that came from Europe into Nigeria to harvest slaves were to come back again, a lot of Nigerians will buy slots to follow the ships cos of the mess the country has become. That ambassador must be representing cows and not Nigerians. Buhari has used that slot to strengthen his ties with his herdsmen brothers. It's annoying to read that the Jigawa state Governor allegedly fronted him so he can get him serve as an ambassador to Morocco, and double as his conduit in his Casablanca based fertilizer company...this is just the height of creative fraud.

Then as military president in 1985, Buhari advocated & voted for Idi Omaro (a fulani man from Niger Republic) as the OAU secretary against his country man-ambassador Peter Onu in a gross disregard for country.

The same Buhari a delegation left Niger Republic passed through Kano to partake in his presidential election campaign? Remember, the railway corridor being proposed from Kano/Kastina will also end in Maradi-Niger Republic.

So nothing new because Buhari has committed a lots of lawlessness & illegalities never seen by any president in histroy including the abuse of national security.

Some Nigerians did not live in America as long as this man lived in Nigeria before they get appointed or elected to public office. Hypocrisy is top of the many things I hate in my life, he came here as a child and has live here since 1975, 45 years and counting!

BTW, who take Sahara Reporters serious again in this country, maybe PDP dundees.

Ha ha ha. As if President Buhari has ever hidden the fact that he is presiding over Niger and Nigeria republics.
Buhari who splashes Oil revenues from the Nigerdelta on building standard gauge rail lines in Niger Republic while Eastern Nigerdelta region lacks modern standard gauge rail lines.

You have made a great point which I agree with totally. Most Nigerians would jump to celebrate when their compatriots get government appointments in Oyinbo country, yet they will cry wolf when a foreigner enjoys the same benefit here.
Bloody selfish hypocrites!

I think the difference is that the origin of the Nigerians you talked about are well documented and well known. But when the man's origin is shrouded in secrecy, then it gives cause for concern

Same with Athiefkwu the IPIG demi God.

I actually know about 3 people in my Estate who are from Benin Republic but have been in Nigeria for so long that they have been living basically as Nigerians. They vote during elections and their kids are in Nigerian schools as Nigerians.
