Majority Leader Femi Gbajabiamila was never convicted anywhere in Nigeria or overseas, his campaign organization has declared.
At a media briefing in Abuja to dispel notions that Gbajabiamila has criminal charges hanging on his head, the Campaign Organisation led by Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin, said attempts to smear the character of the leading Speakership candidate “has failed woefully.”
Jibrin said there was no reason under the heaven why Gbajabiamila should not contest or lead the House of Representatives.
According to him: ” He was eligible to contest for the four previous elections he won, including becoming the Majority Leader.
“He has never served any notice or notified by the Clerk of the National Assembly. It is a campaign of calumny to smear our leader, which has failed woefully.”
According to him, Femi will be on the floor on June 11 to be elected speaker to take over from Yakubu Dogara who seizes to be the speaker from tomorrow after the valedictory session.
