Reactions have trailed the appointment of the outgoing Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila and the immediate past Minister of Special Duties, George Akume, as the Chief of Staff to the President and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, respectively.
Premium Politics had earlier reported that the President, Bola Tinubu appointed Gbajabiamila and Akume, to their new positions during a meeting with the Progressives Governors Forum on Friday.
However, there have been different reactions to the development on social media, with people giving their different opinions.

“We will still meet you in court, where I hope our petition to unseat you succeeds. But for now, well done!
