President Buhari reappoints Garba Abari as NOA DG
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed Garba Abari as the director-general of the National Orientation Agency (NOA).
This new appointment was announced in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed.
Abari was first appointed to the position in 2016.
The NOA is a body charged with communicating government policies, as well as promoting patriotism, national growth, and unity.
In a recent address on the security challenges in the country, Abari had appealed to leaders across all levels, as well as youths, to promote peace within their localities.
“Community, political, religious and economic leaders of the country should urgently build consensus on the need to rescue Nigeria from the grips of banditry, kidnapping, terrorism, secessionism and violent cultism to avoid a slide into anarchy. If we allow Nigeria to burn, it will consume all of us,” he had said.
“The youths, especially, must realise that they are the biggest stakeholders and beneficiaries of a peaceful Nigeria. They should, therefore, make concerted efforts to build a stable nation where they will realise all of their life ambitions and potentials.
“Crises will disrupt our lives, abort our dreams and leave us with the future task of building the country anew.
“Every person of influence in Nigeria should, at this time, work towards dissuading violence and galvanising all persons within their sphere of influence for the peace of the country.”
Meanwhile, Abari’s reappointment, which took effect on May 25, 2021, is for a final term of five years.
