Ibrahim Jibril

Alhaji Ibrahim Jibril, Minister of State for the Environment, has been selected as the 13th Emir of Nasarawa Emirate in Nasarawa State.
The emergence of the Minister, who was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari, as the new emir, followed the death of Alhaji Hassan Abubakar II, the 12th emir, who died earlier in November after a brief illness.
The appointment was announced by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in the state, Haruna Osegba, on Thursday in Lafia.
Osegba said Governor Umaru Al-Makura had already approved the selection of Jibril as the successor to late Abubakar 11.
The Nasarawa emir has over 30 years of working experience, 25 of which were spent as a Land Officer in the administration of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Jibril is a land reform specialist, a former Deputy Director, Development Control Abuja, and has worked with more than five FCT Ministers.
He was once the Director of Land Administration Department of the FCT.
He is a seasoned technocrat with specialisation in urban renewal, spatial data management and land information system Nasarawa Geographic Information System, where he became known as: “NAGIS’s Brain Box.”
Termed as a workaholic, strict disciplinarian, experienced and a corrupt-free technocrat by his colleagues and those whom have worked with him, Jibril holds the highly ranked traditional title of Wamban Nasarawa.
Osegba said the governor has met with traditional rulers to ratify the decision of kingmakers from the emirate.
He disclosed that the meeting also ratified the selection of Lawrence Sylvester Ayih as the new Abaga Toni of Toni kingdom to succeed his late father, Dr. Sylvester Oho Ayih, who died in September 2017.
The commissioner said Al-Makura was satisfied with the choices of the kingmakers and commended their maturity during the selection process.
He also congratulated the new first class chiefs for ascending the throne of their forefathers and wished them a happy and prosperous reign in their chiefdoms.
