Gambari: I Report Only To The President, Not The Public by Hunt27: 5:05pm On May 13
The new Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, has said his primary allegiance would be to President Muhammadu Buhari and not the public.

The Chief of staff stated this on Wednesday when he spoke briefly to State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa.

He started out by thanking President Buhari for deeming him worthy to serve in the new capacity, adding that he would serve the President to the best of his ability.

“I thank the President of the Federal Republic for giving me the opportunity to serve him and of course, the country”, he said.

Asked what Nigerians should expect from him as Chief of Staff, he said “we have not started, I’ll have to find out. I don’t report directly to the nation, I report to the President”.

About what he has to offer the President, he said “my loyalty, competence and support”, adding that his guiding principle as Chief of Staff would be “to serve the President to the best of my ability”

I agree with him on this. The CoS & the PPS report "directly" to thier employer - Mr President, NOT the public.
It is part of the responsibility of the Minister of Information or SA on Publicity & Media to report directly to the public.
The bottomline is that he should his intellectual prowess & numerous experience to the good of his employer & by extension the Nigerians.
TIME WILL TELL!

So they are no longer public officials, being paid from the purse of the civil service? If they report only to the President, then let the President pay them from his own private pocket!

It's okay. It seems his appointment was based on strict terms and conditions.

What a life time investment opportunity, to secure a plot in a beautiful Estate with C of o.
Located at Omole Phase 2 extension and sharing boundary with Magodo phase 2.
Proximity to power city of Alausa; Ikeja, Lagos.

In a nutshell, what Gambari is saying is he is not accountable to the nation.

If he is serving the Presidency then he reports to the nation. The office he occupies is not paid out of Buhari's bank account but from national treasury.. grin

These old men did not have social media in their time. They think the old script of just telling people anything and they'd swallow is true in our generation. We are on top of it! grin
