Maryam Uwais was, on Wednesday, reappointed as Senior Special Assistant to the President on Social Investment despite the call by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, made it known to the media on Wednesday.

Before the re-appointment of Uwais, the first lady had logged a complaint to the president over inefficiency and failure of the social investment programmes in the North being run by Uwais but Buhari shunned his wife’s observation and went ahead to reappoint Uwais.

Uwais, it was learnt, has replied the president’s wife, saying Aisha spoke without the knowledge of available records on the programme.
