We read in Isaba and Istiab that Umar wrote to the people of Kufah

فإني بعثت إليكم عمار بن ياسر أميرا وابن مسعود معلما ووزيرا،  وإنهما لمن النجباء من أصحاب محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، من أهل بدر، فاطيعوا لهما  واقتدوا بهما
I am sending towards you, Ammar as Amir and Ibn Masud as teacher and minister, and they are amongst the noble companions of the Prophet (s), hence obey them and follow them.

Istiab 4/80 , Isaba 2/369
