There is no greater honour than that which comes from your peers and colleagues, – Femi Gbajabiamila credits President Bola Tinubu’s political ascent to his ties with colleagues

Chief of Staff to the president and former House of Representatives Speaker, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, has linked President Bola Tinubu’s political rise to the ties he built with his colleagues when he was a senator in 1992.

Gbajabiamila stated this during a reception and award presentation, organised for him and other members of the Forum of APC Former Members Of the House of Representatives, who are either ministers or governors.

Some other members recognised by the forum are Niger State Governor Hon Umar Bago, and the minister of sports development, Hon John Enoh.

In his remarks at the event, Gbajabiamila, who thanked his former colleagues for organising the reception to honour them, however decried the absence of some other award recipients.

He said, “I will tell you one thing today, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, he may not know it, I have been around him for a long time, one of his greatest strengths and what catapulted him to where he is today were his former colleagues when he was a senator. So this is a constituency we must hold dear. We just shouldn’t burn bridges when we leave.”

The chief of staff however donated N50 million to the forum, noting “there is no greater honour than that which comes from your peers and colleagues.”
