The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has urged President-elect Bola Tinubu to appoint a member of the House of Representatives, James Faleke, as his Chief of Staff in his incoming administration.
AYCF disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, signed by its National President, Yerima Shettima.
It also revealed its reasons for picking Faleke, describing the lawmaker as a loyal associate of Tinubu.
AYCF’s statement reads in part: “Hon James Faleke is a very loyal Tinubu supporter and associate who has proven to be reliable as ambassador to the President-elect any day.
“Nigeria has had serious challenges caused by the communication gap between the President, ministers and even state governors. This is an opportunity for the President-elect to get someone with good skills in managing the relationship between him, officials of government and the rest of Nigerians.
“We urge President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu to make sure he makes an informed choice of his Chief of Staff with loyal, proactive progressive and hale and hearty parliamentarian like Hon James Faleke.”
Tinubu is expected to name his cabinet after his swearing-in as Nigeria’s President on May 29.
The former Lagos State governor won the Feb. 25 presidential election after beating the likes of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi.
