"President Buhari appoints Bashir Ahmad to head Department of Petroleum Resources," People's Gazette

President Buhari has appointed his junior media aide Bashir Ahmad to supervise a powerful and lucrative division at the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

Mr. Ahmad, 29, has served as personal assistant to Mr. Buhari on new media since 2016. Despite still retaining his presidency appointment, he recently hustled his way in as the head of the newly-established National Production Monitoring System (NPMS) of DPR – Nigeria’s preeminent oil and gas sector regulator.

“Bashir got the appointment early January, but his documentation took place last week,” a State House official familiar with the appointment told the Gazette.
