Fayose’s aide blast APC over PDP, Ibori: Akande, Gbajabiamila are ex-convicts | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Lere Olayinka, ​Special ​Assistant on ​Public ​c​communications to Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has lambasted the APC for attacking the PDP over inclusion of former Delta State Governor, James Ibori in the National Convention Committee.

Olayinka said there were APC ​ex-convicts in the ruling party too and warned APC to desist from throwing stones from the glass house where they live.

He wrote on Saturday: “Fact is Ibori was convicted in UK, he has served his punishment, and imprisonment of anyone should be reformatory and not a stigma with which someone’s existence must be terminated.

“Now to the APC; 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.

“Fact is Hon Gbajabiamila was convicted in the United States for stealing his client’s $25,000 and he is leading the APC in the House of Reps. He was banned from practising law in the USA for 36 months.

“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”.

  1. That is the case of charcoal that called pot black, as events unfolding.....

  2. Ibori looted a full state..that's d matter here..Akande campaigned with state's fund, which Fayose is doing now..that's almost normal..Gbajabiamila had issues with a client or friend.. I wish that was Bode George and Ibori's case..Can't u see how stupid, this Mere is, to come to d public glare to defend looting...PDP never change nothing...they are still d thieves they have always been..shame

  3. anonymous 4:28pm. you see why I believe these politicians are not the real problems of this nation but gullible youths like u who follow and work for them. you have the brainless guts to defend a criminal because he belongs to APC your party. Ibori and Bore George stole but Akande and Gbajabiamila are mere misunderstandings. I weep for this nation and type of citizens/youths I share the same nationality with. god forbid

    1. Which side are u? By ur name I can tell

  4. Some PDP thieves decamped and joined APC before the 2015 elections. Others thieves joined the ruling party for fear of prosecution. The totality of PDP thieves are presently in APC. So PDP as presently consituted is the best party the country can boast of. It is not the name, but the individuals that make a party. If you vote APC in 2019, those thieves will do worse than what they did while in PDP. Be wise guys.
