The APC stalwarts were also battling to emerge as the Chief of Staff to the former Lagos State governor.

However, Leadership learnt that Faleke and Gbajabiamila had settled their differences after the intervention of the President-elect.

Tinubu reportedly asked Faleke to dump Jaji and back the choice of Abass for House speakership.

A source, who was privy to the meeting but pleaded anonymity, said: “The much-advertised rift between Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila and Hon. Abiodun is over.

Two of them are allies of the President-elect and the President-elect has called them to order. They have been prevailed upon to sheathe their swords. They have been told that Asiwaju boys shouldn’t be seen fighting openly.

“Hon. Faleke has been told to tow the party’s line (APC’s position) on zoning. Consequently, Hon. Faleke has dumped his preferred choice for House speakership, Hon. Sani Jaji.

He is now with the camp promoting the anointed aspirant of APC and President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. In turn, Hon. Abiodun Faleke is going to serve as chairman of appropriation in the 10th House of Representatives. This is signed and sealed.”
