A mind boggling scandal has been Uncovered in the administration of President Bola Tinubu, as his Chief of Staff Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, is allegedly accused of collecting millions dollars from a director of Research and Development, at the TETFUND, Alhaji Salihu Bakari, to appoint him as the Executive Secretary of the institution.
A highly placed source confirmed to our correspondent that Alhaji Bakari, has allegedly boasted to his very close friend’s and allys that he has been assured of his appointment as the next Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, which will be announced officially next week.
According to the source, he will be taking over from the Federal permanent Secretary in the Federal ministry of Education, Sunday Ochono, who was appointed as the Executive by the Buhari administration last year.
Ironically, the current minister of Education Prof Tahir Mamman and the current Executive Secretary of Universal Basic Education, UBEC, Hamid Bobboyi, all hail from Adamawa State.
The source further added that, based on principles of the Federal character it will be grossly inappropriate to appoint another indigene of Adamawa State to head the TETFUND.
The source further revealed that Alhaji Bakari, is optimistic that he will secured the job owing to the fact that it cost him millions of dollars which exchanged hands with the President Chief of Staff directly to secure the appointment which will be announced next week by president Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
