The Committee of Youths on Mobilisation and Sensitisation has called on President-elect Bola Tinubu to consider appointing Abiodun Faleke as Chief of Staff or Secretary to the Government of the Federation due to his loyalty.
In a statement released on Wednesday in Abuja, CYMS Director General Obinna Nwaka stated that Faleke, who currently serves as the Secretary of APC Presidential Campaign Council, is an accessible and detribalized leader who deserves such an appointment.
Nwaka also highlighted Faleke’s ability to work under pressure and his understanding of both economic and political situations, adding that his appointment as Secretary of the APC Presidential Campaign Council by Tinubu was an indication of the next administration’s preparedness for a good reward system.
According to Nwaka, Faleke is an unbiased, understanding Christian politician and a quintessential leader with the ability to withstand pressure. He said that Faleke was always ready to salvage any predicament that could affect Tinubu’s victory.
“Faleke should be considered for Chief of Staff or SGF in the next administration. He is a man who has suffered for the actualization of this Tinubu’s presidency over decades and as CoS or SGF, will go a long way,” Nwaka said.
Nwaka also emphasized Faleke’s loyalty to Tinubu, stating that it had cost him the opportunity to be the Governor of Kogi State when late Prince Audu Abubakar, the governor-elect whom he ran a joint ticket with, died.
Nwaka added, “Faleke would have been Governor of Kogi State seven years ago when an unfortunate incident happened, but that opportunity was truncated. Though we are glad that after the 2023 election, APC won in the center, we are hoping that Asiwaju will encourage him to serve as his CoS or SGF to enable him to continue his good work.”
CYMS is an evaluation and monitoring body with structures in the states of the Federation, engaged by the Presidency in 2018. Its mandate is to sensitize and promote the policies and programs of the Federal Government.
