Yusuf Gagdi, the representative for Pankshin/Kanam/Kanke Constituency in Plateau State, has responded to recent speculation regarding the influence of Chief of Staff Femi Gbajabiamila over President Bola Tinubu.
In an interview on Channels TV, Gagdi firmly asserted that President Tinubu is not being controlled by his Chief of Staff.
Addressing the reports that suggested Gbajabiamila’s significant control over President Tinubu, Gagdi expressed his disagreement with such claims.
He emphasized that such an assertion is unfair and does not reflect the President’s political acumen.
Gagdi highlighted President Tinubu’s extensive political background, including his tenure as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his successful two-term governorship in Lagos.
Gagdi’s view is that reducing President Tinubu’s decision-making power to the influence of his Chief of Staff is an underestimation of the President’s capabilities and accomplishments.
According to Gagdi, President Tinubu possesses a deep understanding of his responsibilities and a clear sense of what is best for the Nigerian populace.
He described President Tinubu as a leader who is well-equipped to distinguish between right and wrong, and who is driven by the welfare of Nigerians.
Gagdi firmly stated that President Tinubu cannot be manipulated or remote-controlled by anyone, given his level of preparedness, experience, and determination to achieve his goals.
In conclusion, Gagdi’s remarks underscore the conviction that President Tinubu operates with a high degree of autonomy and a keen awareness of the nation’s interests.
The lawmaker’s statements emphasize the President’s capacity to make informed decisions independently, debunking the notion that his Chief of Staff wields undue control over him.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
