Following the resignation of Kawu Sumaila as the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on National Assembly Matters (House of Representatives), President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Umar Ibrahim El-Yakub as his replacement.

Mr Sumaila, appointed SSA in August 2015, resigned to contest for membership of the House of Representatives representing Sumaila/Takai Federal Constituency in Kano State under the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

His successor, Mr El-Yakub, an APC stalwart from Kano State, was a member of the House of Representatives in 1998 and between 2003 and 2007 representing Kano Municipal Federal Constituency.
