At Last, Bayo Onanuga Gets Presidential Appointment
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
A veteran journalist, Mr Bayo Onanuga, has been appointed as the Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Information and Strategy.
A statement issued on Friday by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Ajuri Ngelale, said Mr Tinubu also appointed Ms Delu Bulus Yakubu as his Senior Special Assistant on Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.
In the statement, the President wished his new aides “well in the discharge of their duties,” noting that their appointments were “part of efforts to prioritize effective and efficient working synergy between the Presidency and Federal Ministries.
He said they were chosen because they had “prior working experience within the architecture of the Federal Ministries they will be coordinating with.”
Mr Onanuga was among the media spokespersons to President Tinubu during his campaign.
Some observers had thought he would get Mr Ngelale’s job or be appointed as the Minister of Information and Strategy because of his role during the electioneering.
