PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday May 31, 2015 named the Nigeria Guild of Editors (NGE) President, Femi Adesina, and the Director, Media and Publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Garba Shehu, as his spokesmen.

While Adesina will serve as the Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Shehu will be the Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity).

According to a statement made available to journalists by Shehu, the President also approved the appointment of Lawal Kazaure as the State Chief of Protocol (SCOP).

However, the statement did not indicate Adesina and Shehu’s work schedule as their two offices appear similar.

The NGE President, Adesina is also the Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief of The Sun newspapers.

Shehu was the President of the NGE 16 years ago.

Kazaure is a career Foreign Service official and currently serves in Aso Rock Villa as a Special Assistant (Presidential Matters).
