According to a source who talked with Daily Post, there is a commotion among supporters of Tinubu who are determined to ensure that Gbajabiamila is gradually removed from the Presidential Villa.
Naija News reminds readers that ten Resident Electoral Commissioners (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were appointed by President Tinubu last week.
The platform claims that the Chief of Staff has substituted the majority of the President’s authorized appointment names since Tinubu took office.
According to a trustworthy source, one such instance saw the Ekiti REC’s name being changed to that of a former commissioner serving under Kayode Fayemi, the state’s most recent governor.
The insider claimed, “That was not the guy Asiwaju signed off on, the REC from Ekiti that he (Gbajabiamila) put there, the man was Fayemi’s former commissioner. Asiwaju gave his approval to Toyin, a.k.a. Mrs. Oluwatoyin Babalola, the former INEC legal adviser.
However, two members of the President’s cabinet met with him after the announcement was made to express their displeasure that the person they had recommended had been replaced. The President was furious and said that before signing the list, he looked up the woman’s name.
He called for his CoS, but he was stuttering when he got there. He was instructed to present the signed list by the President.
The President stated that, according to what he has been told, everything he signs would be altered. The President cited three occasions in which he signed a document that was later altered. Feeling guilty, he sent him one last warning. The woman’s name needed to be on the list, he ordered.
According to the insider, there was a strategy in place to gradually let Gbajabiamila leave the Villa.
The insider said, “This is about the fifth time the CoS has embarrassed the President.” A strategy exists to gradually remove him from Villa by assigning him to an ambassadorial role.
According to a different source, part of the CoS’s job was already being completed by President’s Private Principal Secretary (PPS), Akeem Okunola.
