Femi Gbajabiamila, a leader in the House of Representatives, has gifted his wife, Salamatu, a brand new G-Wagon for her 50th birthday celebration. The brand new car is said to be worth N75m and this has kept many tongues wagging. But only a few people know that Femi has a weakness for the good life. In fact, one would have to get very close to him to know that he never dithers from acquiring the finest luxury money can buy.
Both in Nigeria and in Atlanta, USA. You couldn’t have forgotten so soon the madcap years of letting expensive cognacs and champagnes flow like a rivulet; or setting sail on a yacht for different territorial waters with stops in the party cities of the world. Femi rocks!
As you read, he has scenic houses and choice cars to mention a few of his enviable acquisitions. Though successful politician whose storied and sensational life would make many of his peers feel like they came to the world at a wrong time.
However, he would be unable at acquire such luxury had he not taken the right steps in his pursuit and acquisition of money. Femi cultivated the money habit very early in government. He saw it as the perfect means for bribing his way through the inconveniences of life. He pursued and acquired money in markedly different tradition from the ways of his peers.
However, Gbajabiamila, who will be rounding up his fourth term of 16 years in 2019, has been running helter skelter to perpetuate his stay in the lower chamber of the National Assembly beyond May 2019 in the hope that his 2015 botched ambition of becoming the Speaker would be revived and realized.
This Gbajabiamila’s covetous aspiration has driven him to go all out to become political adversary to anyone who has indicated any interests in truncating his return to the seat which he has been occupying since 2003. Consequently, this ‘It’s all about me’ demeanor is not sitting well with many who have their eyes on the same seat. And more miffed by Gbajabiamila’s posture of indispensability and invincibility are a high number of constituents who believe Gbajabiamila’s legislative deliveries have been underwhelming.
Vanity afflicts Femi’s soul. Not a few people wonder how he manages to sleep at night and live at peace with himself, even as he ignores the wants and miseries of his impoverished kith and kin. Femi’s vanity is unprecedented, according to very close sources to him. He simply chooses to live for himself and he spares no expense in giving himself a treat.
