Amidst calls for his removal, President Bola Tinubu has thrown his weight behind his Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila.
Tinubu while addressing the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Monday October 30, said he has 100% confidence in the integrity of Gbajabiamila.
He said: “First of all, let me reiterate to all of you that I’ve heard the stories flying around. Mistakes will be made and perfection is only for God Almighty. I have 100% confidence in the integrity of my Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila.”
There have been reports of push by some associates of the president for the removal of the Chief of Staff on account of alleged sales of appointments by Gbajabiamila to politicians.
Gbajabiamila, the immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives, had been accused of selling ministerial and board appointments to highest bidders.
There have also been campaigns of calumny against the Chief of Staff that he had prevented access to the President.
