President Bola Tinubu has reportedly appointed the incumbent speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, as his Chief of Staff.
According to credible sources, Gbajabiamila was appointed by the president after several hours of meetings and consultations.
The decision to pick the Gbajabiamila was said to have been made by the president after evaluating all possible candidates aspiring for the post among his loyalists.
According to sources, Gbajabiamila was picked by the president after a final meeting with stakeholders that ended on Thursday morning, June 1, at the Villa in Abuja.
Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila who was yet to receive his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), would have to forgo his election into the House of Representatives for the sixth term.
This development would also create another opportunity for other aspirants within the party that had shelved their ambition to represent Surulere constituency 1 at the House of Representatives.
