Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, marks his birthday today Monday, November 27.
He wrote on his Facebook profile, “It is my Birthday today. I’m grateful to Almighty Allah for his kindness and protection.”
Until his appointment as Presidential spokesperson, Shuhu was the president, Nigerian Guild of Editors.
MALLAM Garba Shehu is a frontline journalist, accomplished newspaper editor and a former president of the Nigerian Guild of Editors. His brilliance and expertise endeared him to the former government of President Olusegun Obasanjo, who engaged him as the spokesperson for the Vice President then. His high qualities again caught the attention of President Muhammadu Buhari who appointed him as the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity in 2015 and since then, he has carried on with decorum and high sense of responsibility. In the Nigerian media circles, Garba Shehu is well respected as a towering figure from all corners of the country, and indeed, the whole world.” — VANGUARD
