Femi Gbajabiamila, the incumbent Speaker of the House of Representatives, has reacted to reports that he has been appointed as Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Reports had earlier emerged that the president chose Gbajabiamila after several hours of meetings and consultations.
Speaking with journalists shortly after meeting President Tinubu alongside Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Thursday, Gbajabiamila said people should allow the system work.
“Be patient, be patient, the system works in its own way. Let’s allow the system to work,” he responded to why his widespread appointment had not been made official amid congratulatory messages.
Asked if it would be announced before the end of the day, he said: “We’ll see, we’ll see, we’ll see. Thank you very much.”
