Member of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has declared that he was never convicted in Georgia, United States.
The APC bigwig who recently lost in the Speakership of the House of Representatives to Yakubu Dogara, made this proclamation in a counter-affidavit filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Despite losing out to Dogara, the lawmaker is still being sued by the Social Justice and Civil Rights Awareness who at first insisted that he was not fit to be the Speaker of the House of Reps but now say he is unfit to even be a member of the Lower chamber.
The plaintiff had stated that Gbajabiamila, as a lawyer, was convicted for professional misconduct by the Supreme Court of Georgia, U.S., in 2007.
In the counter-affidavit, dated June 18, 2015, in opposition to the motion by the plaintiff seeking a restraining order against the legislator, Gbajabiamila’s senior legislative assistant, Osaze Ogunditie, denied the allegation of any conviction in the U.S.
He also said that the plaintiff lacked the locus to institute the suit.
