Sudanese Information Minister Abdullah Ali Massar (AFP)

Name: Abdullah Massar

Career: Masser is a former Sudanese Information Minister / Ministry of Information and Communications. He has also acted as the spokesperson of the National Congress Party government.

Background: Abdullah Massar’s resignation was accepted by Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir in April 2012 after he got into a dispute with the presidency over his decision to suspend the director of Sudan’s official news agency (SUNA) Awad Jadain while he undergoes investigation for alleged financial and administrative irregularities.

Bashir reversed Massar’s orders regarding Jadain and halted the work of an investigation committee into SUNA formed by the outgoing minister.

Sana Hamad, state information minister, sided with Jadain and put a freeze on Massar’s decision while he was travelling abroad. This prompted Massar to cut short his trip and strip Hamad from her role as supervisor over SUNA.

He was replaced at the Ministry of Culture & Information by Dr. Ahmed Belal Osman.
