President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Bashir Ahmad as his Special Assistant on Digital Communications.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Ahmad was President Buhari’s aide on new media. He had resigned to represent a Federal Constituency in Kano State.
In May, Ahmad was defeated by the All Progressives Congress (APC) incumbent Abdullahi Mahmood Gaya, who represents Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu Federal Constituency.
While Gaya scored 109 votes in the poll, the 31-year-old scored a paltry 16 votes.
Reacting to his new appointment, Ahmad expressed his gratitude to the president, while promising that he’ll continue to be “a good ambassador of your administration”.
“Alhamdulillah! This is an honor. Thank you Baba Muhammadu Buhari, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for finding me worthy again and again, this time as your Special Assistant on Digital Communications. I will continue being a good ambassador of your administration, Baba,” he wrote on his verified Facebook page on Sunday.
