President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the reappointment of Ade Ipaye and Maryam Uwais as deputy chief of staff and special adviser to the president on social investment programme, respectively.

Laolu Akande, senior special assistant to the vice-president on media and publicity, announced this in a statement on Wednesday.

Akande was also reappointed  alongside Garba Shehu and Femi Adesina, presidential spokesmen.

Aisha Buhari, the president’s wife, had said the social investment programmes (SIP) being run by Uwais failed in the north.

“All appointees are to serve in the Office of the Vice President. Except for Zakari, Bank-Olemoh, Odion and Ngelale, all the other appointments take retrospective effect from May 29, 2019.”
