Political Implications and Opportunities:

Despite not yet receiving his Certificate of Return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Gbajabiamila will have to forego his sixth term as a member of the House of Representatives.

This development creates an opportunity for other aspiring candidates within the party who had temporarily put their ambitions on hold to represent Surulere Constituency 1 in the House of Representatives.

Conclusion:

President Bola Tinubu’s appointment of Femi Gbajabiamila as his Chief of Staff, shortly after assuming office, is a calculated move aimed at securing legislative support for his proposed policies.
