The All Progressives Congress (APC) has defended its candidate for the Speakership position of 9th House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, over reports making the rounds that he was convicted by a Court in the United States of America.
The APC while urging Nigerians to ignore the reports, said the they were sponsored, and describing 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.
