The Progressive Forum, TPF, has expressed excitement with the news of the appointments of Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as the Chief of Staff; Senator Ibrahim Hassan Hadejia as Deputy Chief of Staff (DCOS) and Senator George Akume as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR.
The Forum, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mohammed Funsho who, described the appointments as encouraging, noting that the President has given priority to the most qualified and deserving persons in his first sets of appointments.
“Having followed the political trajectories of the three appointees, their achievements doubtless recommend them for their current assignments. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has over the years built the necessary networks as one of the longest serving lawmakers in our country, coupled with his matchless ability to function as a bridge between the young and old generation of politicians. His appointment as the Chief of Staff is, therefore, one that holds so much promise and huge prospects.
“On his part, Senator Hassan Hadejia, the deputy chief of staff, has, since his days as the deputy governor in Jigawa State, all through his current position as a Senator of the Federal Republic, boasted of a compelling track record that makes his new appointment a cheerful news. Of course, Senator George Akume is very steeped in the very tradition of APC’s progressive ideologies, and he is someone with the right combination of experiences to effectively discharge the role of the SGF,” the group said.
TPF further noted, “At a time of great change, national rebirth and renewal of our shared hope as a nation; the decision of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to appoint these competent individuals is a significant one, and one that TPF strongly support. On behalf of our members nationwide, the forum extends its congratulations to the new appointees and pray they have a rewarding time of service in their respective roles.”
