Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the ninth House of Representatives Speaker election, Femi Gbajabiamila has threatened to sue the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) over the defamation of his character.
This is coming just as political parties have since started intensifying campaigns towards the ninth House of Representatives Speakership election.
Naija News understands that the campaign organisation of the APC, candidate made this known during a news press conference in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital territory on Wednesday, June 5.
The Director General of the Femi Gbajabiamila /Ahmed Wase Campaign Organisation, Abdul Mumin Jibrin, while speaking at the conference said that the decision to sue CUPP leadership followed criminal allegations against Gbajabiamila which are untrue.
Jibrin insisted that Gbajabiamila has not been served any court document hence he would be on the floor of the Green chamber to participate in the election on June 11 despite the campaign.
Jibrin said that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu had already been petitioned and urged to go after the leadership of the CUPP.
He called on the IGP to investigate the source of their information and to identify their collaborators in the federal parliament.
