Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) operating under the umbrella of the Centre for Credible Leadership and Citizen Awareness (CCLCA) have unanimously expressed their unwavering support and confidence in Femi Gbajabiamila, the Chief of Staff to the President.

They affirm that he possesses the essential qualities of character, capability, and competence.

In a press conference held in Abuja, Dr. Nwambu Gabriel, the leader of the group, conveyed this vote of confidence.

Gabriel emphasised that the decision to endorse Gbajabiamila’s capabilities is a direct response to recent criticisms that have questioned his impartiality in the appointment of ministers and other high-ranking government officials.

He underscored the significance of dismissing unfounded allegations against Gbajabiamila, reiterating that he is a seasoned professional with the requisite expertise to effectively carry out his responsibilities.

“Gbajabiamila has come under acerbic attacks from certain political actors who are spreading falsehoods against him just because they missed out on the ministerial and other lists.

“They are blaming him for their inability to occupy appointive office at the moment, even though it is the President acting in consultation with the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC), the governors, and other key stakeholders in the polity that appointed ministers and board chairmen.

“These people do not care for the fact that positions come at the time destined and that clearly, everybody cannot be a minister at the same time,” he said.

He said that as a speaker, Gbajabiamila was a bridge builder par excellence, a force for competence and integrity, and a people-centered lawmaker.

“Let us allow Gbajabiamila to do his job in peace; casting needless aspersions on him won’t cut it, and it is too early to seek to derail the Tinubu-led administration with blatant falsehood,” he said.
