A statement signed and forwarded to Press by Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu on Tuesday quoted the Ex-UN Secretary-General as saying: ”I would like to sincerely congratulate you on your recent appointment as Chief of Staff to H.E. President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria.

”Your appointment is a great asset not to the President of Nigeria but also your country Nigeria and Africa in a broader sense.
