President Muhammadu Buhari may have confirmed the rumours that he is prepping up former Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola as his chief of staff.
Buhari has reportedly handed over the 800-page Mallam Ahmed Joda-led Transition Committee Report to some of his trusted associates, with Fashola heading the team to review the report.
Fashola has being tipped severally as the favourite to emerge as chief of staff to Buhari because of his experience as a former chief of staff, 2-term governor and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.
According to Vanguard, Buhari instructed that the voluminous document be handed to Fashola to reduce the report into an implementable format for him to read and take necessary actions.
“Hopefully, from next week, some appointments would be announced. Buhari is a fast reader and he will be able to take immediate actions based on the transition report,” a source said.
