Nigerian Afro-pop singer Yemi Alade has waded into politics by criticising the appointment of Ibrahim Gambari as President Muhammadu Buhari’s new chief of staff.

Mr Gambari is a retired diplomat and previously served in Mr Buhari’s military government in the 1980s. He replaces Abba Kyari, who died last month from coronavirus.

The fact that he is 75 years old has led to some opposing the appointment, which was the gist of Alade’s tweet.

“We also need young minds… I never said old minds are irrelevant,” she later added.
