Appointment of Prof. Suleiman Abubakar as the Director General of Nigeria Institute of Legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS) has been described as well-deserved and a round peg in a round hole.
The Ilorin Emirate Youth Development Association (IEYDA) stated this in a statement issued by
its National President Alhaji Abdullahi Babatunde Salaudeen and National Publicity Officer, Alhaji Mohammed Uthman Jagunma and made available to newsmen in Ilorin.
The statement further described Prof Abubakar’s appointment as a recognition of his meritorious services as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria among other offices he had occupied in the past.
The youths appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR and the President of Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki for the honour bestowed on one of the illustrious sons of Ilorin Emirate Community.
The statement also congratulated Prof. Suleiman Abubakar on his appointment, charging him to give his best in taking the institute to an enviable height and use his new office to benefit humanity.
