The current Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has been chosen to take on the role of Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It was gathered that this decision effectively removes him from the upcoming 10th National Assembly.
Gbajabiamila, who secured a 6th term as the representative of Surulere Federal Constituency in Lagos State, made the announcement through his Chief of Staff, Olanrewaju Smart Wasiu, on his official Facebook page on Thursday morning.
According to the statement, the President’s decision to appoint Gbajabiamila came after thoroughly evaluating various potential candidates among his loyalists.
This move signifies a significant departure for Gbajabiamila, who is yet to receive his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as he will now forego his sixth term in the House of Representatives to join the executive branch of government.
