Gbajabiamila opens up on ‘lobby’ to become Tinubu’s chief of staff

House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gabjabiamila said he is not lobbying to be appointed as Chief of Staff to President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

The lawmaker reacted to a question on the speculation during a chat with correspondents in Abuja on Monday.

He was not at the International Conference Centre (ICC) last week when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presened certificates of return to Reps-elect.

The absence fueled the rumour that he was interested in directly working under Tinubu in the next government.

“I don’t know anything about that chief of staff thing,” Gbajabiamila responded.

The Speaker said some people were assuming he must be in line for the office, thinking he doesn’t care about his mandate.

“I was in Lagos and I could not leave Lagos because I was campaigning for my party.

“It’ll interest you to know that I was not here four years ago to pick up my certificate because I couldn’t make it,” he added.
