Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president in 2023, has added three new aides to his media squad.
The names of Eta Uso, Abdulrashhed Shehu, and Demola Olanrewaju were the names of the three appointees given by Abubakar in a statement signed by his media adviser, Mr Paul Ibe, who also noted that the appointments were effective right away.
Uso is the former vice president’s special assistant for digital media operations, according to Ibe.
Uso is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and a specialist in advanced computing and internet systems at the University of Wales, Bangor. He received his training in the United Kingdom.
He is a member of the Nigerian, British, and Nigerian Computer Societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Abdulrasheed is named Special Assistant, Broadcast Media. He is a professional media specialist with ten years of work experience at different media companies and a track record of success.
He also holds master’s degrees in journalism and broadcasting from Girne American University in Cyprus and in international relations and diplomacy from Maryam Abacha American University. He went to ISM Adonai in the Benin Republic and got his bachelor’s degree in mass communications.
Olanrewaju was listed on Ibe’s roster as a special assistant for digital media strategy.
Olanrewaju is a communications and public relations specialist who gained knowledge of political ideologies and Nigerian history while serving as a leader of the students’ union at the University of Ado Ekiti.
Ibe stated that the man was “involved in the startups of a number of businesses” and that he “brings media industry knowledge, digital media engagement and creative writing skills to shape perceptions, craft narratives and messaging for individuals, businesses and organizations.”
In another development, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, has reaffirmed his intention to support Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa despite mounting pressure on him to do so.

The 13 Governors of the party are reportedly reaching out to the candidate to ease tension.
While some are calling for a complete replacement, others are looking for a more consoling strategy, which would involve Atiku personally reaching out to Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State.
