Hamdok fired national auditor, appoints SPLM-N deputy leader as adviser
Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok appointed four new advisers, including deputy leader of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) Yasser Saeed Arman. He also fired the national auditor and replaced him.
Additionally, Aisha Hamad Mohammed was appointed as an advisor for gender issues, Ali Juma Abdullah was appointed as an adviser for governance and institutional change, and Hassan Nasrallah Ali Karar was appointed as a peace adviser under Hamdok’s order.
Al-Tahir Abdul Qayyum Ibrahim was relieved of his post as national auditor by Hamdok, who appointed Fakhr al-Din Abdul Rahman Ali as temporary auditor.
The SPLM-N is a member of the Juba peace agreement’s transitional administration. Gen. Malik Agar, commander of the SPLM-N, is a member of the Transitional Sovereign Council.
Yasser Arman was offered the post of political adviser to the Prime Minister after the dissolution of the first cabinet in February.
Arman stood for election in 2010 as a representative of the SPLM, prior to the South’s independence. He was urged to withdraw from the presidential election by many prominent figures in the movement.
