The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos) has never been convicted anywhere, the Femi Gbajabiamila/Wase Campaign Team said on Wednesday.
According to NAN, “The Director General of the team, Rep. Abdulmumin Jibrin (APC-Kano) made this known at as world press conference in Abuja.
The news conference followed series of reports claiming that Gbajabiamila was disbarred by the State Bar of Georgia in the United States of America for fraud and subsequently convicted.
He said that in the last few weeks, the media had been washed with what he described as “a reoccurring fabrication of false accusations and outright lies against the person of the Leader House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila .”
Jibrin said that the latest was a live press conference addressed by someone, who claimed to be speaking on behalf of Coalition of United Political Party [CUPP].
According to him, but for publicity the press conference attracted, we would have simply ignored the baseless and unfounded allegations.
“For the benefit of doubt, we wish to once again state emphatically that Femi Gbajabiamila has never been convicted for any crime in the United States of America, Nigeria or any other country around the world for that matter.
“He has never been accused of corruption and has no corruption case hanging on his neck in Nigeria or anywhere around the world.
“He has not committed perjury and has never committed perjury in Nigeria or any country of the world.” he said.
