2024 Budget: I Live in my Private Residence, Femi Gbajabiamilia


President Tinubu’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila has given justification to the erroneous social media commentary regarding the 2024 appropriation bill and renovation saga.

Femi said, there is no budget provision for the renovation of the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, that he lives in his own private resident while working for the President.

In a statement released via X, he said the renovation is meant for the presidential quarters in Dodan Barracks and the Vice President’s lodge in Lagos.

The statement reads

I have seen social media commentary regarding the 2024 Appropriation Bill, particularly the provisions under the Office of the Chief of Staff to the President. Owing to the erroneous nature of these reports, it has become necessary to clarify that there is no provision in the 2024 Appropriation Bill for the renovation of any residence for the Chief of Staff to the President. I live in my private residence.

The sums mischievously quoted by online bloggers and fake news merchants are for renovating the Presidential Quarters in Dodan Barracks and the Vice President’s Lodge in Lagos, to overhaul the information management and communications facilities in the Presidency to meet modern standards and to provide vehicles for the staff of the Presidency. The sums proposed for these projects are clearly stated in the budget proposal and bear no resemblance to the deceptive online commentary.

This administration welcomes and encourages scrutiny of government expenditure; this is why the Budget proposal is publicly available. However, healthy public debate about government actions requires us to be responsible with our utterances and engage based on facts rather than insinuations and falsehoods.
