Adamawa - Gov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa has directed his Chief of Staff, Abdurrahman Abba, to oversee the affairs of the Ministry of Information pending the appointment of a substantive commissioner.
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Yola and signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mai'jama’a Adamu.
When Abba, the immediate past Commissioner for Information, was nominated for the post again last month, he could not scale the screening exercise in the House of Assembly.
Nyako has yet to send a fresh nomination to the House for the vacant post.
