Ibrahim Gambari hands over to Gbajabiamila as Chief Of Staff 

Former President Muhammadu Buhari chief of staff Ibrahim Gambari has handed over to his successor, Femi Gbajabiamila, the outgoing speaker of the house of representatives.

The handing over, witnessed by President Bola Tinubu, took place on Monday at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The speaker had previously served as minority whip, minority leader and majority leader before being elected as the speaker in 2019.

Shortly after Gbajabiamila’s appointment was made official by the President, the 60-year-old expressed his gratitude in a statement, ending weeks of speculation.

“Having spent the last 20 years in the Nigerian Parliament, and after winning my 6th term election into the National Assembly, I shall work with Mr President in discharging the enormous task ahead of him for the peace and progress of the federal republic of Nigeria.

“I shall give my best when I take office on June 14 2023 as reflected in Mr. President’s official letter,” he said.

As the Chief of Staff, Gbajabiamila’s role is primarily focused on managing the flow of information and people, while also advising the president on various issues.
