The former Osun State Senator, Babajide Omoworare, has been named Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly (Senate) to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Omoworare is set to take over from Ita Enang, who was appointed in 2015 under the first tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
On Tuesday, Omoworare announced in a statement that Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to Buhari on Media and Publicity, informed him of his appointment.
The statement reads:
“Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has just announced my appointment as a Presidential Aide to Mr. President for the National Assembly (Senate).
“I am grateful to God Almighty and to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, for the opportunity to serve his government as his primary liaison with the Senate. I gladly accept this rare and coveted privilege to advance the administration’s legislative agenda, promote its policy priorities in the Senate and foster Mr. President’s constitutional responsibilities in the National Assembly.
“As I resume the helms of President Buhari’s Legislative Office team, I am aware of the importance of ensuring a more productive working relationship between the Executive and the Legislature. I have spent the past two decades working passionately as a parliamentarian, policy strategist, legislative strengthening advocate and lobbyist.
“Therefore, it is my sincere but humble hope that my knowledge, expertise and network of contacts in the National Assembly will be positive and outstanding resources to my new office, this administration and the Nigerian nation.”
