Gbajabiamila Explains How He Got Money To Buy G-Wagon For His Wife
The majority leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila who recently came under attack on social media for buying his wife a Mercedes Benz G-Wagon as gift on her 50th birthday, has defended himself.
Gbajabiamila, yesterday in a statement, said that he bought the car after he had saved for “a couple of years”
He explained that the presentation was planned to be a family alone affair but however, the car delivery delayed and arrived when guests were flocking in already.
“I took the decision far back to present her with a significant gift, she was totally unaware of, to convey in part, the debt of my gratitude for her standing by me through thick and thin,” he said.
“I could never be half the man I am today without her support and unbelievable understanding.
“Truly, the monetary value of any gift, real or imagined, pales in significance when I consider how much of a rock and pillar she has been to me.
“As a public officer, one must be held to a higher standard.
“But I would rather want it to be seen as what it is; an expression of appreciation of deep love for my wife of almost thirty years, rather than one of flamboyance.”
Gbajabiamila said he remains committed to his values and towards improving the lives of his constituents and Nigerians.
