Buhari replaces Enang with Omoworare as SSA, National Assembly Matter (Senate)


President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly dropped Ita Enang as his Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matter (Senate) while replacing him with Babajide Omoworare, a former Senator from Osun State.
Enang is a former senator from Akwa Ibom State.
The new appointment is among those to be announced this week by the presidency.
Meanwhile, the Akwa Ibom State government on Sunday came hard on Enang over his statement on RUGA settlement.
Enang had while defending the controversial programme on a private radio station in the state, claimed that cows seen in Akwa Ibom State were owned by ‘big men’ in Akwa Ibom, who employed the Fulanis to manage them.
He said such persons include serving and former state and federal legislators, retired and serving security officer, party officials, among others.
Reacting, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Charles Udoh said “the statement by Ita Enang was borne out of greed and desperate quest to cling to power, despite him (Enang) spending 20 years in public office.”
“The comments made on a live radio programme; may, on a cursory look sound like another of his lame political gamesmanship but beyond that facade it becomes a matter of grave concern when a man of his standing deliberately makes statements capable of heating the polity in his home state and causing security breaches.
“I wonder why such a ‘vile assertion’ should come on the heels of the attack on innocent and defenseless farmers in Mkpat Enin Local Government of the state by gun wielding herdsmen; which left one person dead and several others injured.
