PEOPLES Democratic Party (PDP), South-West, has given the House of Representatives Minority Leader, Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, 14 days within which to resign his membership of the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
The party gave the ultimatum in a release issued by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Honourable Kayode Babade and made available on Thursday.
“Since he has admitted that he was sanctioned by the Georgia Supreme Court for professional misconduct and negligence, the most honourable thing to do is to vacate his seat in the House of Representatives,” he said.
The Supreme Court of Georgia, US, according to advertorials in the newspapers, had, on February 26,2007 suspended Gbajabiamila from practising law for 36 months.
Gbajabiamila, an Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) lawmaker, admitted violating Rule 1.15(I) of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct set forth in Bar Rule 4-102(d) in respect of a $25,000 settlement claim.
The PDP said it was ridiculous that Gbajabiamila could be using the House of Representatives impeachment plot against President Goodluck Jonathan as a defence for his past.
