    Gidado added that the appointee is a former lecturer at Usman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, and retired from active service as a Director in the Presidency in the Bureau for Public Enterprises.

    He said, “Barrister Ibrahim Muhammad Kashim holds a LL. B, BL, LLM and Masters in Business Administration and various Post Graduate Certificates in Management, Administration and Economic Reform and Divestiture from many Institutions in the United Kingdom and the United States.

    “He hails from Bauchi Local Government Area of the state. He is a Legal Practitioner, a former Lecturer at Dan Fodio University Sokoto, a public servant, and a policy expert.

    “He retired in 2015 as a Director in the Presidency (Bureau for Public Enterprises) where he headed various departments and acted as the Director-General.”

    The Media Aide said that upon retirement, Barrister Kashim ran a Consultancy Outfit known as Kauthar Resources Nig.

    According to him, he is a registered member of the Nigeria Economic Summit Group, a non-profit, non–partisan private sector-led think tank with a mandate to promote and champion the reform of the Nigerian economy into an open, globally competitive economy.

    “In 2020, Barrister Kashim was appointed as the Pioneer Director-General, Bauchi State Bureau for Privatisation and Economic Reforms, an agency set up pursuant to the current Government of Bala Mohammed’s resolve to reform, restructure and grow the economy of the state.
