The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabjamila, has distanced himself from a letter backing the extension of the year of Service for some National Assembly staff, especially the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sani Mohammed Omolori.
The letter, which surfaced on the social media, was reportedly signed by the Chief of Staff to the Speaker, Hon. Sanusi Kiriji.
But Gbajabiamila in a statement on Wednesday, denied the purported letter.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has been drawn to a letter purportedly emanating from his office allegedly stating his endorsement of the new Condition of Service for National Assembly staff passed by the 8th Assembly
“The Speaker wishes to inform the general public that there was no time he directed issuance of such purported letter from his office as there is a recognized and authorized channel for all correspondences and resolutions reached by the House or its leadership.
:The Speaker also wishes to call on the general public to disregard the letter and always rely on official communication channels of the House for news on the position of the House on any matter.”
