House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila has denied speculation that he is lobbying to be appointed as chief of staff to the president-elect, Bola Tinubu,
Gatekeepers News reports that the lawmaker reacted to a question on the speculation during a chat with correspondents in Abuja on Monday.
Gbajabiamila was absent at the international conference centre (ICC) when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented certificates of return to elected members of the 10th house of representatives.
His absence fueled the rumour that he was interested in working as Chief of Staff to Tinubu.
“I don’t know anything about that chief of staff thing,” Gbajabiamila responded.
The Speaker said some people were assuming he must be in line for the office, thinking he doesn’t care about his mandate.
“I was in Lagos and I could not leave Lagos because I was campaigning for my party.
“It’ll interest you to know that I was not here four years ago to pick up my certificate because I couldn’t make it,” he added.
