Bashir Ahmad, the Special Assistant on Digital Communications to the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has welcomed his first child with his wife, Fatima.

Sharing the good news with his friends and fans, the president’s media aide via his verified Twitter account posted, “lhamdulillah! Allah has blessed us again. Fatima Bashir Ahmad has majestically graced this world on this wonderful Friday.

“May Allah grant her abundant knowledge and preserve her on the straight path and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (SAW). Mun gode Allah!”

Ahmad tied the knot in September 2020, in Kaduna State. The elated father attended Bayero University, Kano State, where he studied Mass Communication and graduated in 2013.

Two years after, he was appointed by President Buhari as New Media Personal Assistant. He was then just 24.

Recently, Ahmad was in the news after he resigned his position as the Special Assistant on Digital Communications to the President of Nigeria, to chase an elective office.

He, however, failed to secure the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) ticket to contest the House of Representative seat for Gaya/Ajingi/Albasu Federal Constituency, Kano.

Later, Ahmad returned to Aso Villa in July to resume his role as Buhari’s personal assistant on new media.
