The race for the vacant position of the Chief of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan hot up on Tuesday with five candidates emerging as leading contenders.
Investigations in Abuja showed that those who had been pencilled in for the post included a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Prince Chibudom Nwuche, a former Head of Service to the Federation, Mr. Steve Oronsaye and a former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke.
Others are the Chairman of DAAR Communications, Chief Raymond Dokpesi and the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Power, Dr. Godknows Igali.
It was also gathered although the President was considering picking the next chief of staff from the South-South, he had not ruled out the possibility of choosing a candidate from the South-West.
We won’t mention so much about any of the candidate but on thing they all have in common is that they are all Politicians, so who would you prefer
