Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff to the immediate past President, Muhammadu Buhari, has handed over to his successor and the outgoing Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
President Bola Tinubu and some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) also attended the ceremony and posed for a photo session with the duo.
Recall that the President, last week Friday, appointed Gbajabiamila as his Chief of Staff following a series of meetings and consultations with APC stakeholders.
The President also approved the appointment of Senator George Akume as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), and a former Deputy Governor of Jigawa, Senator Ibrahim Hadejia, as his Deputy Chief of Staff.
The new appointments, which were made in a meeting with Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), were contained in a statement on Friday by State House Director of Information, Abiodun Oladunjoye.
