This move signifies a significant departure for Gbajabiamila, who is yet to receive his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as he will now forego his sixth term in the House of Representatives to join the executive branch of government.

Sources mentioned in the statement revealed that the President’s choice of Gbajabiamila over James Faleke, the representative of Ikeja Federal Constituency and an effective campaigner for Tinubu, was motivated by the desire to have someone who could assist in persuading lawmakers in the National Assembly to support his proposed policies.
