President Bola Tinubu has appointed speaker of the house of representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, as his chief of staff.

Ibrahim Hassan Hadejia, a former deputy governor of Jigawa state, has been named deputy chief of staff.

During a meeting with the progressives governors forum (PGF) in Abuja today, the president also named former governor of Benue state and immediate past minister of special duties, George Akume, as secretary to the government of the federation (SGF).

It is the president’s first set of appointments since he was sworn in on May 29.


Akume served as minority leader of the senate from June 2011 to June 2015.

He served as governor of Benue from 1999 till 2007 — the same period Tinubu governed Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.

On his part, Gbajabiamila was first elected to the house of representatives in 2003. Since then, he has won every election to represent Surulere I constituency in the green chamber.


He became the minority leader of the house in the 7th national assembly and in 2019, he won the race to the speakership of the house.
