Dr. Aminu Gamawa has been appointed as the new Chief of Staff to the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed.
Gamawa was the immediate past Commissioner of Budget and Economic Planning.
Recall that last Wednesday, the Governor dissolved his cabinet including the Secretary to the State Government, Sabi’u Baba; his Chief of Staff, Dr. Ladan Salihu; 21 Commissioners, and his Special Advisers.
He, however, retained his Special Advisers on Security, National and State Assembly Liaison, Social Investment, and Media and Publicity.
The appointment of Gamawa as Chief of Staff was contained in a media statement signed and made available to journalists in Bauchi early Monday morning by the Special Adviser of Media and Publicity, Mukhtar Gidado.
The appointment takes immediate effect.
According to Gidado, Gamawa holds a Master’s and Doctorate Degree in Law from Harvard Law School at Harvard University, USA.
Gidado said that the former Commissioner presented many academic and professional papers at local and international conferences.
He stated, “Dr. Gamawa was in the year 2020 awarded with the National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) Award.
“Until his appointment, he was the immediate past Hon. Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Bauchi State.”
