BREAKING: Former Benue Governor George Akume to be named SGF



The immediate-past Minister of Special Duties and former Governor of Benue State, Senator George Akume, is set to be named the new Secretary to the Government of Federation.

With this decision, President Bola Tinubu may have pacified the North Central zone ahead of the race for leadership of the National Assembly.

Feelers indicate that President Tinubu has decided on the choice of Akume, his long time ally, for the top job.

The people of North Central and All Progressives Congress members are reportedly unhappy for being taken out of the consideration for the position of Speaker of House of Representatives.

Since his inauguration on Monday as the 16th President of Nigeria, expectations had been rife among many political actors and Nigerians for the appointment of personal aides of the President leading to many speculations on social and mainstream media.

One of the social media speculations was the purported appointment of the Speaker of House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, as the Chief of Staff to the President.

The President, according to available information, is expected to formally announce the appointment of Senator Akume alongside other personal aides between Friday and Monday next week.
