Femi Gbajabiamila member of the Nigerian House of Representatives is currently seeking election to lead the Lower Chamber of Nigeria’s National Assembly.
However, he was found GUILTY of a crime in Georgia; Gbaja says he has the pedigree to lead the House of Reps “I seek this office with a rich legislative background and pedigree”.
A BRUSH WITH THE LAW IN THE U.S.
On February 26 2017 the highest court in the state of Georgia ordered that Femi Gbaja with state bar number 288330 be suspended from the practice of law for 36 months. The punishment for Femi Gbaja’s offence would have been outright debarment…
However, before the court could rule on the petition from his client, he filed a petition for Voluntary Discipline, in which he fully admitted to stealing $25,000 from his client.
Femi Gbaja, as he was known in the case file accepted payment of $25,000 as a personal injury claims and deposited those funds in his attorney trust account in January 2003.
He closed his practice and fled to Nigeria where he contested for elections to represent Surulere 1 Federal Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives in 2003.
Upon arrival in Nigeria, curiously, Mr. Femi Gbaja added another name to avoid detection. He is now known in Nigeria with a compound name “Femi Gbaja-Biamila”.
