The Presidency on Monday refused to confirm whether Senator Ita Enang is still the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters (Senate).
According to media reports, Senator Christopher Babajide Omoworare, who represented Osun East in the 8th Senate, will step in as the next Senate Liaison Officer to President Buhari.
Enang, a former lawmaker in the Seventh Senate, was appointed to the office in 2015 during President Buhari’s first coming and was still in acting capacity, even during the ministerial screening by senators before they proceeded on annual recess to resume September.
However, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, is in the best position to speak on the matter.
“The SGF is in the best position to speak on that”, Shehu said in a terse reply.
