The President considered several potential candidates within his loyalist circle before making the decision.

This move marks a significant change for Gbajabiamila, as he is yet to receive his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

By accepting the role of Chief of Staff, he will be foregoing his sixth term in the House of Representatives to join the executive branch of the government.
