The meeting, which started at about 11:22 a.m., occasioned by the prevailing coronavirus pandemic in the country, was conducted in line with the basic COVID-19 protocol of social distancing.

A former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, whose news of appointment as the new Chief of Staff (CoS) to President Buhari went viral in the traditional and new media outfits, was seen at the meeting’s venue.

NAN reports that a one-minute silence was observed in honour of the late Malam Abba Kyari and some former members of the cabinet before the commencement of the meeting.

During the meeting, the SGF formally announced Gambari as the new CoS to the President.

Gambari took his official seat as Chief of Staff to the President immediately after his introduction by the SGF.
