- President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly dropped Ita Enang as his aide on National Assembly Matters

A source close to the presidency has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari has dropped Ita Enang as his aide on National Assembly Matters (Senate).
Premium Times reports that the source said that the source who made the claim on Sunday evening, August 11, added that Enang has been replaced by Omoworare Babajide.
Legit.ng recalls that Enang, an ex-senator, was appointed a special adviser to President Buhari during the first tenure of the president.
Just like several other aides whose appointments have not been renewed, Enang continued to act in that capacity in President Buhari's second term.
According to the source, Enang was replaced by Babajide, a former senator from Osun state, because he did not perform well in managing the relationship between President Buhari and senators in the eighth Senate.
Recall that President Buhari and the Bukoa-Saraki led Senate did not have a rosy relationship during the president's first tenure.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the re-appointment of his personal physician, Dr Suhayb Rafindadi and 10 other personal staff.
The president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, confirmed this development in a statement in Abuja on Friday, July 5.
In another previous report by Legit.ng, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday, August 10, sent a message out to all Muslims in the country in celebration of Sallah.
In the message, the president commented on vital issues in the country such as security as he urged Muslims on the need for peace, among other things.
To catch the very significant things in Buhari’s address, it is important therefore to give a breakdown of his message.
1. Islam is a religion of peace
The president called on all Muslims to do away with violence as the religion they practice is that of peace. He said that actions that give Islam a bad name should be shunned.
2. Violent extremism is Islam’s greatest challenge
Buhari said that violent extremism is the greatest challenge facing Islam presently. He advised that the best way to deal with that is to stay away and dissociate from actions and ideas that support extremism.
