President Muhammadu Buhari has just renewed the appointment of 12 non-career ambassadors, according to the State House. The president said the decision was meant to ensure that all states that were adequately represented. He assured Nigerians that he would accord all segments of the country “fairness in representation and inclusiveness in all matters of governance.”

The Presidency added: “The assurance from the President became necessary following recent complaints after the announcement of 41 non-career ambassadors that some states were not captured.

“The renewal of the appointments followed a performance evaluation, which necessitated an approval for continuation in office of the ambassadors, and the President will still decide if they will remain in their current postings.”

The Administration’s spokesperson Mr Garba Shehu, named the ambassadors. They are Mrs Uzoma E. Emenike (Abia); Yusuf M. Tuggar (Bauchi); Muhammad B. Madugu (Bauchi); Amb. Baba Ahmad Jidda (Borno); Uyigue O. Oghogho (Edo); Dr. Eniola Ajayi (Ekiti); Deborah S. Iliya (Kaduna); Mohammed D. Rimi (Katsina); Prof. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande (Kebbi); Dr Modupe E. Irele (Lagos); Adeyinka Asekun (Ogun); and Sen. Goni Modu Zanna Bura (Yobe).

The Presidency added that Buhari “congratulates the ambassadors on the renewal, urging them to keep upholding and promoting the values of stewardship to Nigeria, while bridging good relations with other nations.”
