Tinubu Appoints Ribadu, Alake, Six Others As Special Advisers

President Bola Tinubu has named eight individuals as special advisers.

They include a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, and a former Lagos Commissioner for Information, Dele Alake, who has been a close aide of Mr. Tinubu for years.

Mr. Ribadu was named special adviser on security. It is unclear if that position will see him function as a national security adviser.

Mr Alake, on the other hand, will serve as a special adviser on special duties, communications, and strategy.

Mr. Tinubu also appointed Wale Edun, a former Lagos commissioner, as special adviser on monetary policies.

The appointments were contained in a list of eight special advisers announced by the Director of Information at the State House, Abiodun Oladunjoye.

Mr. Tinubu had last week named a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, as his chief of staff and a former Governor of Benue State, George Akume, as Secretary to the government of the federation.

Ibrahim Hassan Hadejia, a former senator and deputy governor of Jigawa State, was also appointed deputy chief of staff.
