The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has denied that he flew 300 guests to Dubai, United Arab Emirates for his mother’s birthday.
Sahara Reporters had alleged that Gbajabiamila flew 300 guests in private jets for the birthday celebration of Lateefat Olufunke Gbajabiamila, who just clocked 90.
However, in a statement by Gbajabiamila’s Spokesperson, Lanre Lasisi said the speaker indeed flew friends and relatives to Dubia, but not 300 guests.
The speaker said that “not a single politician or a legislator was present at the event.”
Adding that “this event was strictly for family members and a few childhood friends for which no public funds were appropriated or expended.”
This will be the second time the speaker will be in hot water over lavish birthday celebration. Gbajabiamila in 2018 bought a G-wagon for his wife, Salamatu Gbajabiamila.Source:
