Chief of Staff: Faleke Is A Round Peg In A Round Hole – Eze Emmanuel Ejike
As the chase, cum bid for who becomes the Chief of Staff to the President Elect, Senator Tinubu, gets tensed up and hot, it is imperative that an in-depth background check is properly done to actually get someone who is tenacious, consistent, committed, dogged, trustworthy, loyal, honest and faithful to his Boss.
Putting round a peg in a round hole, is of paramount importance, with respect to how sensitive and strategic the office of Chief of Staff is.
In a scout for who is the best personality with that required trust charisma, which every president looks out for, when searching for a Chief of Staff, one name comes to mind.
Having looked around various persons in APC, who are close to Tinubu, there’s no one as close and trusted as Hon. James Faleke.
Who is James Faleke? He is someone the president can entrust the engine room of his kitchen cabinet to, and go to sleep, without having any form of double mind, about the key performance index and the delivery quotient of his subjects.
Mr Faleke is one man, who has delivered on many responsibilities given to him on a 100% scale. The most recent is the responsibility of being the Secretary of APC Presidential Campaign Council, which he was able to manage and as well massage the egos of different cabals, camp, cliques and temperaments. He understood the key delivery points, understood his job description and was able to organize the PCC in a way and manner that led to the victory of APC at the polls.
James was able to carry everybody along, both the National Working Committee (NWC) and PCC. He amalgamated both groups together and there was peace. That’s a strong skill of a leader, which is rare to find.
James is someone who has the emotional intelligence to handle difficult situations, when the president seems overwhelmed with plethora of challenges.
Mr Faleke, is one man, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed, can have peace of mind with, while he concentrates on doing other time consuming tasks.
Making Hon. Faleke the Chief of Staff, will be a win-win for Tinubu, APC and Nigerians, because, for sure, he will be that intermittent face, that will synthesize intelligent information for easy assimilation of Mr President.
Lastly, James Faleke is a devoted Christian, from Kogi State, North Central. Appointing him the CoS, will further strengthen the spread of our religious and ethnic diversity, which is the bedrock of our collective unity and peaceful coexistence, which is also enshrined in our constitution, in section 14 subsection 3.
I strongly recommend him for this highly sensitive and critical office, for the success of Tinubu’s administration.
