Nigeria Student Forum / General Discussion / Metro News / Speakership: What APC Said About Gbajabiamila’s Conviction In The United States

, Nigeria.
As the battle for the 9th assembly speakership contest continues, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has defended its candidate, Hon Femi Gbajabimila over alleged perjury.

Naija News recalls that Philip Undie had filed a suit before a Federal High Court in Abuja alleging Hon Gbajabiamila was convicted in the US for fraud-related offences.

Meanwhile, the APC while urging Nigerians to ignore the reports, said they were sponsored, and describes the allegations as “phantom and infantile”.

It noted that the allegations had become reoccurring fabrication.

It recalled that the same baseless allegations were made against Gbajabiamila in the lead up to the 8th National Assembly speakership race but came to naught. The party emphasised that Gbajabiamila had never been convicted for any crime in Nigeria and abroad.

“We urge Gbajabiamila and his vibrant campaign team to remain focused on their extensive county-wide consultation and engagements which has been well-received and endorsed across party lines.

“Ahead of the June 11 inauguration of the 9th National Assembly, we urge all APC federal lawmakers to rally around the candidatures of Sen. Ahmad Lawan, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and all our candidates for the respective principal positions,” it said.

The party also commended Sen. Danjuma Goje for his decision to withdraw from the 9th Senate Presidency contest in support of the party’s endorsed candidate, Sen. Ahmad Lawan.
