Buhari Re-appoints Bashir Ahmad After Losing APC Primary

President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Bashir Ahmad as his Special Assistant on Digital Communications.

Ahmad was Personal Assistant on New Media to the President before resigning his appointment to contest for the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) for Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu Federal Constituency in the year.

The new appointment was however disclosed in a letter dated July 20, 2023 to Ahmad by Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

Mustapha said the appointment took effect from July 19, 2022.

The presidential media aide lost his bid to secure the ticket of the All Progressives Congress at the primary for Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu Federal Constituency.

Ahmad had frowned at the way and manner the party’s primary was conducted, saying it was fraught with fraud.

The presidential social media handler is believed to be the only presidential aide ‘recalled’ by the president since the conclusion of the APC primaries.

All the cabinet ministers and presidential aides except Ahmad, who resigned to participate in the APC primaries but failed to secure the party tickets had since been replaced by the President.
