Lawmaker Applauds Tinubu For Defending Gbajabiamila Amidst Corruption Allegations



A House of Representative member representing Ibadan North Federal Constituency, Olaide Akinremi, has lauded President Bola Tinubu for expressing his unwavering confidence on his Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, News About Nigeria reports.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, the lawmaker  said Gbajabiamila’s appointment as Chief of Staff was well thought out by the President.

He also noted that the President is a man of wisdom who will not compromise the goodwill of the nation because of anybody, irrespective of his relationship with the individual.

He further stated that those who have worked closely with the former Speaker of the House of Representatives during his years at the National Assembly know him to be steadfast, and to be a man of integrity without compromise.

Akinremi also kicked against the accusations that Gbajabiamila sells appointments to the highest bidder, noting that such allegations are from people who are against Tinubu’s administration.

He said, “the propaganda and rumour going around are disheartening to those of us who know him for an unblemished record for the past 20 years in the House of Representatives.

“We know that these rumors are being sponsored by some elements that never wish the government well; they are not comfortable with some decisions of the President that are against their interests, so they thought blackmailing the Chief of Staff would give them a way in, which have all but been squashed by the statement of Mr. President.”

The lawmaker, therefore, advised people planning any form of protest against Gbajabiamila to channel their energy to something more meaningful, because the evil plans of enemies of Tinubu’s administration have been exposed.
