Governor of Yobe, Mai Mala Buni has approved the appointment of Mamman Mohammed as the Director-General Press Affairs and Media.

A statement from the office of the Secretary to the state government said Mr Mohammed’s appointment takes effect immediately.

The statement shared by the Information officer at the office of the SSG, Shuaibu Abdullahi, reads in part: “His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Yobe State Honourable Mai Mala Buni has approved the appointment of Mamman Mohammed as Director-General Press and Media.

“Mr Mohammed is to effectively take over from Mr Abdullahi Bego, who is now a serving commissioner of Information in the cabinet of Governor Buni.

Abdullahi Bego, a veteran journalist and government spokesman has occupied the office since 2007.

Until his appointment, Mr Mohammed was a Senior Correspondent with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yobe state.

Efforts to get comments from Mr Mohammed wasn’t helpful at the moment as his phone line has been very busy with calls in the past hour.
