The Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari, has resigned as Chairman of the Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development (SCDDD).
This is coming after President Buhari last week appointed Gambari as his CoS.
The development was released in a statement by the Executive Director of the Centre, Amb. Abdullahi Omaki. The Chief of Staff noted that he was resigning his appointment to avoid conflicts of interest.
“I have conveyed this development to the attention of the Board Members who after their deliberation, unanimously, appoint Mallam Abidu Yazid as the new Chairman for Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development (SCDDD).”
“I would like to once again congratulate Prof. Gambari for his vision in establishing this Think-Tank that has made tremendous contributions to the sustenance of Democracy and Development through constructive advocacies since 2014.”
