Speakership hopeful for the 9th House of Representatives Hon Femi Gbajabiamila has for the umpteenth time, denied ever being convicted by any court of law either in Nigeria or elsewhere as being rumoured.
In specific reference to a press conference held by the Conference of Nigeria United Political Parties (CUNPP) on Tuesday, the Gbajabiamila/Idris Wase Campaign Organisation said , he had also not committed an act of perjury anywhere
According to the organistaion’s director general Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin said the allegation was a product of mischief which sponsors they already knew, and would unveil at the appropriate time.
“We wish to once again state emphatically clear that Hon 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 (Gbajabiamila ) was eligible to contest in all previous elections he won and indeed eligible and qualified to contest for the office of Speaker House of Representatives in the 9th assembly.
“The allegations have also been tested and struck out in our court of law. The state Bar of Georgia has also written and categorically stated that ‘there is no criminal conviction in the matter relating to Hon Femi and he is currently an active member in good standing of the State Bar of Georgia’. All these facts are in the public domain.
“We further wish to state that Hon Femi has not been served any summons by a magistrate court neither has he been notified by the clerk. We are worried that those behind these antics are trying to drag the judiciary and our revered judges to what is clearly a hatchet job. The judiciary must not allow itself to be mixed in such cocktail of dirts”.
He said Gbajabiamila had severally and comprehensively responded to these allegations, provided clarifications and set records straight.
