The Ebonyi chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has applauded the appointment of Prof. Ibrahim Gambari as the new Chief of Staff (CoS) to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The party in a statement issued by Chief Eze Nwachukwu, its state chairman on Thursday in Abakaliki, described the appointment as ‘strategic’ in achieving the Next Level agenda of the administration.
Gambari was inaugurated on Wednesday by the President during the first virtual Federal Executive Council meeting after COVID-19 lock down in March.
Nwachukwu described Gambari as a seasoned diplomat, technocrat, politician and international statesman with a wide range of experience in local and international politics.
He said that Ebonyi APC was confident that the new CoS would bring his vast wealth of experience in public service to bear in formulating policies and programmes of government.
The party chairman also urged Gambari to use his new position to accelerate unity and progress of the party and galvanise it to victory in 2023.
“The choice of Gambari as the CoS is putting a round peg in a round hole; Mr President was divinely inspired to make the choice.
“Gambari has distinguished himself in public service both at national, regional and international arena making him much more qualified to occupy the position.
“The ambassador will leverage his wealth of experience to advise Mr President on key policy formulation, implementation, and we believe that he will be loyal and committed to realising the goals of the ‘Next Level’ administration.
“We congratulate the Kwara-born scholar, diplomat and politician and wish him a successful stay in office.”
