Bashir Ahmad Denies Being A DPR Manager Or Staff by lalasticlala(m): 12:53pm On Feb 15
Bashir Ahmad, president Buhari's media aide, has denied being a manager or staff of the Department Of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

He said:
A friend sent me a link to a concocted story from an online news blog that the President has quietly appointed me as a manager of the DPR, a department of Ministry of Petroleum Resources, for those who want to know the truth, the story is 100% FALSE. I am not a staff of the DPR.
https://twitter.com/BashirAhmaad/status/1361240266410180608

This is in reference to a story by People's Gazette which made the following allegation:
Mr. Ahmad, 29, has served as personal assistant to Mr. Buhari on new media since 2016. Despite still retaining his presidency appointment, he recently hustled his way in as the head of the newly-established National Production Monitoring System (NPMS) of DPR – Nigeria’s preeminent oil and gas sector regulator, the Gazette learnt from four officials at the presidency and DPR with sufficient details of the appointment.

Bashir got the appointment early January, but his documentation took place last week,” a State House official familiar with the appointment told the Gazette. “It was delayed following the death of one of his friends, Jamilu Ibrahim Shinkafi, in an accident along Bauchi-Nasarawa Road, precisely in Akwanga in Nasarawa.”

“His appointment at the presidency will expire by 2023,” an official said. “So he would move to DPR as his permanent job by then.”

Some paranoid social media users have observed that Bashir Ahmad didn't specifically deny being involved with National Production Monitoring System (NPMS). A more specific denial of having ever had anything to do with the NPMS would totally clear any doubts in their minds.

Nigerians will change, one-day

I will not carry Nigeria matter like gala on my head

I believe that if nigeria does not make it in my own generation, it would get it right in the future.

Our life span is just 80years, Nigeria is not flesh and blood, Nigeria can exist for millennium. It is not a must that all the changes must happen in this my present lifetime.

Why do I even want Nigeria to be great? What would it add to my pocket. The Nigeria that soldiers fight for today, may not even exist centuries from now. Then they would have died in vain.

Countries that exist today may not exist tommorow, USA may even be no more, Where is USSR today?

Where are Neutral Moresnet
,Republic of Salò,
Tibet,
United Arab Republic,
Sikkim,
Ceylon,
Czechoslovakia,East Germany ,


Just take life easy and contemplate on life sometimes, Africa that has been written off may become world leader tommorow, so just don't sweat it

And what the fvck is wrong with the president giving him job @ DPR?

gaius01:

With this your mentality, Do you know that your birthright can be sold at the expense of tribalism and family business?

Even though it's your right, don't accept everything, sometimes vet well before accepting anything.

As if this bloody hypocrite won't jump at it if he was in Bashir Ahmad's shoes

Sabiu 'Tunde' Yusuf is suddenly an Assistant Director in NIA while Bashir Ahmad is a manager at NPM a unit under DPR, (he cleverly denied been a staff of DPR) they have secured a place for themselves after Buhari leaves office in 2023, even Service Chiefs who were just retired are now Ambassadors while Nigerian youths keep searching for jobs in Govt with huge bribes and getting scammed.

It's no longer a case of when the principal leaves office his political appointees go with him, under Buhari they will just relocate to a juicy parastatal while some urchins who lost their place in Npower of 30k use Nairaland and social media to defend these abnormality.

Change beigins when we realize that democracy is hard work.
Most of us don't want to do the hard work of living in a demcoracy...instead we look for a saviour who will come and lead us into a land flowing with milk and honey.
That's how we ended up with PDP foir 16 years, and now APC for eight years....looking for s saviour who does not exist.
Now some of us are looking at Biafra or OODUA OR sharia or whatever...forgetting that the minute something is set up, the same old corrupt ones will come in and take over.
Some are looking at revolution...like revolution is easy.

Start doing the hard work of democracy, and maybe things will change. Stop expecting a saviour.

Yes, it is a failed and flawed model

But , as Winston Churchill said...the other models are worse.

We tried dictatorship in this country, first under the pre-colnial rulers, then the Brits, then millitary rule. Harsh, terrible and did not work.

Democracy is a flawed system. But if you like, we can live under a dictator. Tomorrow, you people will be complaining that your rights have been taken away.

Are we really free or living under an illusion of freedom.

When the idea of democracy was born, technology was low then, they didn't have internet, and all these stuff we have today,

We can modernize democracy, I chose direct democracy and not this representative democracy instead

The truth of the matter is that the denied news is the truth.

And if you try to open up the can of worm called the Buhari presidency, you will find worms longer than the snakes that lalasticlala? glorifies on this nairaland front pages.
