President Muhammadu Buhari has officially announced the appointment of the Sun newspaper Managing Director/Editor-In-Chief, Femi Adeshina, as the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, while Mallam Garba Shehu will be the new Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity.

The President made the appointments this evening, Sunday, May 31 in Abuja.

Buhari also appointed Lawal Abdullahi Kazaure as the State Chief of Protocol (SCOP).

Before the announcement, Nigerians have been impatiently clamouring for the new Nigerian leader to appoint his cabinet members without delay, with many saying that his work began after he was sworn in on Friday, May 29.

Similarly, several people have already faulted him and his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo for not declaring their assets publicly, saying they have broken their election promise.

However, it is expected that Buhari will begin to announce appointments of key members of his cabinet in the coming days.
