Akande lauds Buharis appointment of Ibrahim-Imam as TETFUND chairman

Published by The Nation on Sat, 23 May 2020

Chief Bisi Akande, former Interim National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), has lauded President Muhammadu Buharis appointment of Kashim Ibrahim-Imam as Chairman, Board of Trustees, Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND).Akande, a former Governor of Osun, made this known in a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday.He described Ibrahim-Imam, who was a former Presidential Liaison Officer, as the partys cornerstone hitherto overlooked in appointments.He said Ibrahim-Imam played a crucial role in the merger of legacy parties, culminating in the birth of APC.When Buharis government, perhaps inadvertently, gave Ibrahim-Imam no position, Tinubu requested me to talk to Buhari on Ibrahim-Imams behalf.READ ALSO:Bisi Akande heads reconstituted APC National Reconciliation CommitteeI refused because I presumed that there must have been a dangerous disconnect between the APC and its government.Now that the president has approved a position for Ibrahim-Imam in government, I congratulate President Buhari and I also congratulate Ibrahim-Imam.I also sincerely congratulate the APC. I hope that from now on, the party and the government can learn to work in sync.Ibrahim-Imams appointment shows that the rejected stone has been reserved for the corner of the house, he said.Akande said Ibrahim-Imam is the son of Alhaji Ibrahim-Imam, who used to be the Leader of Opposition of the Action Group (AG) in the old Northern House of Assembly.The former interim chairman said Ibrahim-Imam was in the Social Democratic Party (SDP) during the Babangida era, and later became a Special Adviser to President Obasanjo on Senate Matters.(NAN)
