IPMAN’s President, Mr Chinedu Okoronkwo, who made the assertion in a statement on Friday in Lagos, said that Gambari had all it would take to carry out the duties of the office.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 75-year-old diplomat was formally announced as the Chief of Staff on May 13.
His appointment followed the death of Malam Abba Kyari, who held the position until April 17.
