Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has appointed 59-year old Earl Osaro Onaiwu his liaison officer on state matters.

The appointment was announced in a statement by Mr Saraki’s media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, on Tuesday.

“Onaiwu, an experienced politician and public administrator will help to co-ordinate relationship between the Office of the Senate President and the various state governments across the country,” the statement reads.
