In a post on his official Facebook page, he said the development shows that Tinubu would keep to his promise of not Islamising his administration
He wrote, “I like how President Bola Tinubu balanced the two most important appointments in his government between Christians and Muslims, naming George Akume, a Christian Middle-Belter, as his Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and Femi Gbajabiamila, a Muslim Southwesterner, as his Chief of Staff.
“Both men have the necessary educational qualifications and political experience for the positions they are to fill.
Round pegs in round holes
“So far, he is keeping his promise of not Islamising his administration. So far, so good. If he derails, we will give details.
“We will still meet you in court, where I hope our petition to unseat you succeeds. But for now, well done.”
