The new DG attended Danbatta Secondary School, the Kano State College of Advanced Studies and the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria where he graduated with a degree in Political Science.

Buhari is playing politics of bitterness and Buhari sees himself as the president of Himself and not that of Nigeria.
All his key appointments must be from his family circles, If the AC and ANPP think that they are still in APC then something
Is wrong with their brains, no wonder the wise and educated ones are leaving the APC.
