The presidential aides, according to the document, include the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; Deputy Chief of Staff to the President (Office of Vice-President), Adeola Ipaye; State Chief of Protocol to the President, Ambassador Lawal Kazaure; 10 special advisers; 52 senior special assistants; 61 special assistants; 21 personal assistants; five senior technical assistants and one technical assistant.
Remarkably, the late Tijjani Yusuf is still in the list of special assistants. He is listed as the special assistant to the President on General Duties.Another person that questionably made the list of presidential aides is a member representing Kano Municipal Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Shaaban Sharada who was listed as Personal Assistant to the President (Broadcast Media) and the document showed he was appointed on January 22, 2016.
His name still appeared on the list despite winning an election to represent his people during the 2019 General Elections.
Also curiously in the list are the names of two official photographers for the Vice-President.
