A pro-Bola Tinubu presidency support group, Renewed Hope Advocates (RHA), has accused the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, of spreading a false report claiming he is set to be appointed as the Chief of Staff to the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Reports on Tuesday had emerged claiming that Gbajabiamila is set to be appointed as the Chief of Staff to Tinubu. The report also claimed that the Speaker has started carrying out such functions as organising Tinubu’s schedule.In a statement by the Director General, Olufemi-Daniels Agbaoku, the group said the report was false because there was no such consideration on the card at the time of the said report.Agbaoku said the Speaker had become “inexplicably desperate” about the job.
He added that Gbajabiamila was the one selling the narrative, with a view to being favoured for the job by Asiwaju Tinubu over and above anyone else.According to The Nation, Agbaoku advised Tinubu to ignore the pressure being mounted by Gbajabiamila and his cronies and go for a more competent hand with the right temperament, mindset, and credibility for the job.
He noted that the president-elect can not be struggling with the legitimacy of his mandate at the moment and still battle credibility crisis of his Chief of Staff.
He said the president’s office could not be traded on such “pedestrian altar of man knows man.”
