A federal lawmaker representing Obokun/ Oriade Federal Constituency of Osun State, Mr Wole Oke, has said that appointment of Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, as the Chief of Staff (CoS) by President Muhammadu Buhari was the best choice.
In a statement he circulated in Abuja on Wednesday, Oke said Gamabari’s wealth of experience at the global stage would be of great value to the country and her people.
He called on members of the public to discountenance the various negative opinions against the new Chief of Staff, saying such options are personal.
“Gambari is a scholar of repute, a swift diplomat, very responsible, he has character of a statesman”, Oke said.
The lawmaker stressed the need to grab the opportunities inherent in the present challenges to improve the future of the country.
Oke said, “As an experienced public officer of Professor Gambari’s stature, both at home and abroad, and his vision for Nigeria and Africa, which he had exhibited across the globe, I feel that Nigeria is indeed in good hands with him as the Chief of Staf.
“Nigerians across the federation and in the Diaspora, must work concertedly with one another, to promote common grounds, on which the survival of our great nation depends.
“The surest way of attaining this is through ensuring that Nigerians, especially her elites commence talking with one other and not at one other, with the hope of rapidly promoting national unity”.
