Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila is understood to be considered the chief of staff to the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, according to reports.
The current Speaker of the House of Representatives was not available during the presentation of Certificates of Return to Members-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday, March 8, 2023.
The report went on to state that Gbajabiamila may not represent his constituency in the 10th National Assembly as he is likely to be considered for the position in the incoming government.
A source close to the Speaker was also quoted in the report that the Lagos-born politician is being considered because he is one of Tinubu’s core loyalists and proteges.
The source said: “If you notice, he didn’t come for his certificate of return on Wednesday. He doesn’t need that certificate; he has everything to function optimally as chief of staff to the president in the new government.
“He has worked with politicians in every federal constituency and across political divides in the last 20 years.”
