Gbajabiamila denies US conviction
One of the major contenders in the speakership race for the 9th House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has denied the allegation that he was convicted by a court in the United States of America.
The Director-General of Femi/Wase Campaign, Jibril Abdulmumin, disclosed this on Wednesday in Abuja at a press conference to respond to the alleged conviction of Gbajabiamila by a US court.
Hon. Abdulmumin, said 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.
