President Muhammadu Buhari has dropped Ita Enang as his aide on National Assembly Matters (Senate), PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.
Mr Enang, a former senator from Akwa Ibom state, was appointed a special adviser to Mr Buhari during the president’s first term.
He has continued to act in that capacity in Mr Buhari’s second term, even when his appointment, like that of several other aides, has not been renewed.
A source close to the Presidency stated that President Buhari has dropped Mr Enang as his aide on National Assembly Matters.
The president has picked Omoworare Babajide, a former senator from Osun state, as Mr Enang’s replacement, the source said.
The belief in the Presidency is that Mr Enang did not perform well in managing the relationship between President Buhari and senators in the eighth Senate, despite being a former senator himself.
