Malam Ibrahim Sheme, editor of LEADERSHIP newspaper from November 2004 to January 2006 when it was still a weekly, resumes duty today as editor of the daily LEADERSHIP.

He takes over from Hajiya Aisha Yolah, who is getting ready to proceed to the United Kingdom on a British Chevening Scholarship.

Sheme himself was a Chevening scholar between 1993 and 1994, at the end of which he obtained a master’s degree in Journalism Studies from the University of Wales, Cardiff. An alumnus of the Bayero University, Kano, he received a B.A. in Mass Communication earlier: in 1989.

His journey through the media has been long but always fascinating. Once, he was the editor of the Kaduna-based Hotline. At the New Nigerian, Sheme rose from being features editor, arts editor and foreign news editor to deputy editor in 1997. Prior to his stopover at the New Nigerian, however, he had a stint with The Reporter and Nasiha, a vernacular newspaper on the stable of the Nationhouse Press, Kaduna, that also published The Reporter. Sheme was the deputy director of the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation between 1999 and 2001.

Author of a number of books, the new LEADERSHIP editor was the publisher/editor- in-chief of Fim, a monthly film magazine published in Hausa, and, lately, editor-in-chief of Public Agenda.

Sheme, 41, returned to LEADERSHIP last month to begin work as the chairman of the editorial board, a position he has now relinquished.
He is married and has children.
