Loyalists of President Bola Tinubu have accused the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, of allegedly selling appointments to the highest bidders, causing public outrage and calls for an investigation into the matter and Gbajabiamila’s suspension.

According to a Daily Post report, the allegations suggest that Gbajabiamila has been replacing names of individuals approved by President Tinubu for appointments with his own choices, leading to tensions and dissatisfaction within the government.

A plan to ease him out of the Villa by offering him an ambassadorial appointment is reportedly in motion.

A source said that one of such cases was the replacement of the name of Ekiti REC with the name of a former commissioner under the immediate past Governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi

The source said: “The REC from Ekiti that he (Gbajabiamila) put there, the man was Fayemi’s former commissioner, that was not the person Asiwaju signed off on. The person Asiwaju signed off on was one Toyin (Mrs Oluwatoyin Babalola), the former Legal Adviser of INEC.

“But when the announcement was made, two members of the President’s cabinet met with him o complain that the person they nominated had been changed with another person. The President was infuriated, he said he checked the name of the woman before he signed the list.

“He summoned his CoS, but when he arrived, he was stuttering. The President asked him to bring the list he signed.

“The President said so, what he has been hearing is true that whenever he signs something, it will be changed. The President gave three instances that he signed for something and was changed. He felt bad and gave him the last warning. He directed that the woman’s name must be in the list.”

The source added that there was a plan in place to ease Gbajabiamila out of the Villa.

“This is like the 5th time the CoS is embarrassing the President. There is a plan to ease him out of Villa by giving him an ambassadorial position,” the source said.

Another source noted that President’s Private Principal Secretary, PPS, Akeem Okunola, was already doing some of his work.

Besides, it was gathered that the President was already putting up a team that will help the CoS.

The source stressed: “The National Social Investments Programme (NSIP) issue too, that wasn’t the person Asiwaju recommended for the position. Halima Sheu was the one recommended by Asiwaju. Sheu was sacked by Sadiya Farouq, the immediate past Minister of Finance because she was campaigning for us. When she was sacked, Asiwaju promised to return her to the same position or a higher one.”
