Media Aide to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, Lere Olayinka has accused top All Progressives Congress, APC member Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila of allegedly being convicted for stealing $25,000 as a lawyer in the United States.

In the statement titled “Ibori’s appointment into PDP Convention Committee and APC hypocrisy”, Lere Olayinka wrote;

1. The first National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande was jailed in 1984 by a Tribunal duly set up by Buhari’s military regime for using funds belonging to the old Oyo State to fund his political party.
Interestingly, Baba Bisi Akande was only released from jail and not pardoned by the Ibrahim Babangida government.

It is also a fact that it was late Chief Sunday Afolabi who prevailed on the Osun State PDP not to go to court to raise the issue of Akande’s conviction vis his qualification to contest election as a governor in 1999.

2. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the APC Leader in the House of Representatives was convicted for professional misconduct by the Supreme Court of Georgia, United States of America.

The punishment for Femi Gbaja’s offence would have been debarment for life, however he played dead before a full panel of the Supreme Court of Georgia led by Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, before the court could rule on the petition from his client, he filed a petition for Voluntary Discipline, filed under bar rule 4-227(b) in which he fully admitted to stealing $25,000 from his client.

In spite of this indictment, Gbajabiamila was even presented to be Speaker of the House of Reps and same APC people are condemning the inclusion of Ibori in the PDP National Convention Committee.
