The Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, has appealed to Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari’s newly appointed Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Agboola Gambari.
Mr Oyetola made this appeal in a congratulatory message sent to Mr Gambari on Thursday through his press secretary, Ismail Omipidan.
The governor, however, described the appointment as well-thought-out, adding that the President made a great choice for selecting a man with an adequate wealth of knowledge and exposure.
The statement read: “I felicitate Prof. Ibrahim Gambari on his appointment and commend President Buhari for making a great choice. This is a deserving and well-thought-out appointment, considering the enviable pedigree and antecedents of the appointee.
“Prof. Gambari is an erudite scholar, technocrat, seasoned diplomat, and administrator. I am confident he will do well on the job as he will bring to bear, his vast knowledge, wealth of experience and exposure on discharging his official duties as the Chief of Staff to Mr. President.
“I wish him the best as he takes on this new national assignment while also urging all Nigerians to pray for him and give him the support he needs to excel in office.”
