He should report to his employer while his employer reports to the "people" cabal.

Greetings. Been a while

The cabal has been shaken by ordinary covid-19. They are frantically looking for someone to keep their priced secrets together knowing fully well that any mistake at this stage will lead to bubu taking an AWOL.

Therefore, this man is expected to answer to nobody but to bubu. There would soon be a slip. God dey.

U don't need to say cos we already know. The reason it took long to get Kyari's successor is simply because they need someone who can comply to the terms and conditions. Don't make it look u're one hardcore and a no shit man, u just one playing by the rules. Buhari's puppy and Daura's house boy is who you are. Be glad anyways cos u will be more famous, you sure know how it went down with Aba Kyari.
Congratulations though

Gambari, previously a Abacha apointee, defended the execution of Saro Wiwa.

This is the type of person Buhari chose...

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.

And what's the wailing about?

Since when did a chief of staff start reporting to the people?
since their loyalty is to Buhari and not Nigerians Buhari should pay them from his own salary

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
This was his statement:
"I don’t report directly to the nation, I report to the President”.
By those your interpretation of his statement, l now reason why young people like me and you will hardly get this type of job. It seems we don't have understanding of the job

Isn't the Chief of Staff a public official? What is he saying?



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!
No, they(CoS and PPS) are not public officers, they are just personal staff of the president or whomever their principal is.
Our laws permit civil or public servant of certain cadre to have personal staff paid for by the state/govt.
The only problem is that some of these employees start poking their nose into affairs of the state due to their privileged position.

They are already cheesy. They have been on every public forum since his announcement as the new cos with accusations that he supported and defended execution of Saro wiwa during Abacha reign, not because they have much concern. Their fear is that the same thing is about to happen to the person impersonating the late albino hunchback porn star.

Well he said the truth, he reports only to the president.

Igbos can never rule this Country.

I'm an Igbo man and I tell you, we are not ripe for such role yet. Lets allow the North rule over us until we can rule this Country. Let's just stick to the sales of Spare parts, Okrika and other petty stuffs that we are know for.

God bless Nigeria.

For a diplomat of his calibre and age and experience, I'm shocked at his response. He was very undiplomatic, very untactful to say the least.
I mean, even a fool knows you report to the President but common sense should therefore have prevailed because when you report to the President, you are more or less reporting to the Public, the Country. No need shooting from the hips, given the situation in the Country and the circumstances leading to his appointment.

A response like this would have been more diplomatic: "I intend to carry out my duties to best of my abilities hopefully to the satisfaction of Mr. President and the Country''

I am seriously disappointed by this man from Day One, and i do not need Prophet T.B. J to tell me this man's regime will be FIRE compared to Abba Kyari's FRY PAN. Like the Americans would say, ''You ain't seen anything yet''

Is that anywhere in the constitution that Igbo’s can not rule now? If u don’t start now to work for it, it will never happen. U don’t start 2day and it happens 2day. And yes an Igbo man will rule this country soon. My fellow northerner.

He doesn't need to be diplomatic. No diplomacy is required here.

We are only at a period when sharks are all over the internet scheming and digging for something to criticize.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with what he said.

It's not a ministerial position or an ambassadorial position.

He is the President's chief of staff.

If I hired a chief of staff who said he would report to the Nigerian people instead of me,

I will fire him immediately.
