Tajudeen Abbas, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has denounced the baseless corruption allegations leveled against Femi Gbajabiamila, the Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, according to reports on PUNCH.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Abbas called on security agencies to diligently investigate the allegations, emphasizing the importance of upholding accountability and integrity in public service.

The allegations against Gbajabiamila stem from his purported involvement in graft-related activities with the suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu.

However, Abbas refuted these claims, labeling them as unfounded and aimed at tarnishing Gbajabiamila’s reputation.

Highlighting the prevalence of fake news and defamation campaigns on social media, Abbas urged Nigerians to exercise caution and discernment when encountering such content.

While acknowledging the value of constructive criticism, he cautioned against the dissemination of false and misleading information that could undermine the nation’s democracy.

“The recent unjustified and baseless allegations against the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, point to the danger of an unfettered and unaccountable social media,” Abbas stated.

He emphasized the need for accountability and urged security agencies to conduct thorough investigations into the matter.
