By Samuel Ogunsona
The President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been asked not to pick the speaker House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila or Hon. Abiodun Faleke, as his Chief of Staff.
The South West Youth Forum which comprises youth organisations in six South West States made this known during its National Executives meeting held in Ibadan the Oyo state capital on Friday.
In a statement signed by its executive Chairman, Mr Ajimuda Foluso, made available to Irohinodua the group said neither Gbajabiamila nor Faleke posseses the technicalities needed for the sensitive post of Chief of Staff
The group spoke amidsts widespread reports that Gbajabiamila or Faleke may be picked as Chief of Staff by the President- elect
The group said Gbajabiamila has left no legacy in the South West region since his inception as the speaker.
The group urged Hon. Faleke to concentrate on better representative to the good people of Ikeja
He said, “We have it on good authority that the president-elect has yet to make any such commitment, but Gbajabiamila and his allies are the ones selling the narrative to intimidate other alternatives, who might be better than him”
“South west youth Forum believes Tinubu, regardless of misgivings, worked hard for his victory and is believed by a majority of us that he would do well as President. He is actually the change that Nigeria has been itching for and he has to do everything to live this collective dream, starting with personal examples at all times” He added
“We believe the president-elect knows better and would do just what is right at the appropriate time, we equally enjoyed him to named his chief of staff and other related appointments to give a clear indication he would hit the ground running.”
The group urge Tinubu to name the principal officers as the month of inauguration packages.
