The Kaduna State Governor-elect, Senator Uba Sani, has approved the appointment of Muhammad Shehu Lawal as his Chief Press Secretary.
In a statement issued and personally signed by the Governor-elect, the appointment takes effect from May 23, 2023.
Muhammad Shehu Lawal brings to the service more than 10 years of significant and relevant experience in strategic communication, political communication, image management, conflict resolution, peace-building, monitoring and evaluation.
Lawal served as Special Assistant to Governor Nasiru El-Rufai on political matters from 2019 to 2023. He played a key role in the design and execution of the media and communications strategies of the Kaduna State APC Campaign Council and the North-west APC Presidential Campaign Council.
The Governor-elect urged the appointee to devise effective strategies for publicizing government activities, interfacing with the media and relevant agencies, and positively projecting the image of the incoming administration.
In a swift response, the Nigerian Union Of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna State Council, congratulated the newly appointed Chief Press Secretary to the Governor-elect.
In its expression of satisfaction, the union stated that Lawal possesses the ability and capacity to carry everyone along in the journey of re-branding and re-engineering of the new egalitarian Kaduna State under Sani.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the Council’s Chairman and Secretary, Comrade Asma’u Yawo Halilu and Gambo Santos, and made available to news reporters in Kaduna.
According to the statement, the union charged the new media scribe to bring to bear his intellectual prowess, professional ethics and values with a view to giving a sense of belonging to all sections of the media operating in Kaduna State and the country at large.
The statement further enjoined members of the Union as well as relevant stakeholders in the media industry to rally round and support the new Chief Press Secretary in the discharge of his duty.
The NUJ also prayed for a successful and eventful working relationship with the incoming APC administration in Kaduna State for socio-economic and political prosperity among the citizenry.
