Plot to remove Gbajabiamila over us conviction thickens

House Minority Leader, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila is sure to have a very tough time in the house come 2014 as a plot has thickened to remove

Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila

Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila

him over his alleged conviction in the US for 419!

www.thelightnews.com said that a group from Gbajabiamila’s Surulere 1 Constituency in Lagos has perfected plans to storm the National Assembly to demand that the Lawmaker steps down until he gives clear answers to the question on the controversial incident.

They want to know for example if the Honourable Member is the same person as the Femi Gbaja, an Attorney who defrauded a Client of $25,000 being the payment for a personal injury claim that was deposited in his account. Has he ever used a short form of his name, while living and working in the USA?

They want to know if Honourable Gbajabiamila has ever filed a petition for Voluntary Discipline, under Bar Rule 4-227(b) in which he fully admitted to the stealing $25,000 from his client and if he ever appeared before the Supreme Court of Georgia led by Chief Justice Leah Ward either personally or by proxy.

They wanted to know if he ever practiced law in the United States, If yes, what address was his practice located and whether he ever used 20 Mercy Eneli Street, Surulere, Lagos as an address. And what address did he give for his registration in the Bar Directory.

They also wanted to know if in 2006, he made a payment to the said client through his lawyers as a refund of the stolen amount? They also wanted to know with clear documents when he closed his practice in the United States.

Interestingly, they also question the educational credentials of Hon. Gbajabiamila. For instance, did he attend John Marshall Law School in Chicago or did he attend the John Marshall Law School in Atlanta, Georgia? If he did attend any of these institutions, what name did he use?

Though this will not be the first time this incident concerning Hon. Gbajabiamila will be in the public domain but this present attempt to bring him to account will seriously affect his future political life especially because when the matter first made headlines in 2011, he gave a feeble response. And the matter of his alleged double identity was never laid to rest.

If it is discovered that he was convicted of a felony in the United States, it would be a very difficult time for Hon. Gbajabiamila because he would not have been eligible to contest any elections in Nigeria nor even aspire to the office of Minority Leader that he presently occupies.

Worse still, if pursued seriously, the matter can actually send him to jail because it meant he has been a fraud, obtained his position by false pretence and defrauded the state of millions in unmerited salaries and allowances.
