President Bola Tinubu, on Monday, expressed his unreserved faith and confidence in his Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila.

President Tinubu, who spoke moments before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting held in the Council Chambers of the presidential Villa, Abuja, also set the ground rules for the meeting attendance.

The President spoke on sundry issues he had observed and had not been comfortable with, including unauthorized persons gaining access to the Council Chambers of the State House among others.

“First of all, let me reiterate to all of you the fact that a lot of stories are going around about what is happening. I’ve told everyone in this country that I can make mistakes, they’re bound to air them out and correct them.

“Perfection is that of God Almighty. I have absolute confidence on the integrity of my Chief of Staff. All campaigns of calumny and insinuations should stop, the buck stops here.

“If I make mistake I’m ready to own up to it and we’re all joining hands to fight corruption and we want to enforce the law along with you.”

Meanwhile, the Council gave a minute of silence for a former member of FEC and one-time Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Adamu Fika, who died last week at the age of 90 years.

The Council is underway with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume; Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan; Chief of Staff to the President, Honourable Gbajabiamila; National Security Adviser (NSA), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu; and virtually all the ministers in attendance.
