Tinubu’s Loyalists Push For Gbajabiamila’s Sack Over Alleged Sale Of Appointment

There are growing concerns in Nigeria over the alleged trading of government appointments by Femi Gbajabiamila, Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu. Reports suggest that appointments approved by President Tinubu have been replaced by Gbajabiamila since he assumed office.

One notable case involved the replacement of the Ekiti Resident Electoral Commissioner with a former commissioner under Governor Kayode Fayemi. This prompted a stern warning from President Tinubu, who expressed frustration over the changes.

Sources indicate that there is a plan to remove Gbajabiamila from the Presidential Villa, possibly by offering him an ambassadorial position.

Additionally, President Tinubu is assembling a team to assist with the appointment process, as it’s reported that some of Gbajabiamila’s responsibilities are already being handled by Akeem Okunola, the President’s Private Principal Secretary.

The National Social Investments Programme also saw discrepancies in appointments, further highlighting the need for a more transparent process.
