US Govt Reportedly Terminates Gbajabiamila’s Law License

According to reports, President Bola Tinubu’s chief of staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, has had his law licence revoked by the US government.

According to, Gbajabiamila’s licence to practise law was revoked by the State Bar of Georgia in the United States because his alleged ethical transgressions and acts of corruption exceeded the standards set for membership.

Gbajabiamila, according to Peoples Gazette, was expelled from the organisation as of July 1, 2020, for allegedly stealing money from a client and neglecting to pay his dues for a while.


Officials from the Georgia Bar informed the news outlet that Gbajabiamila’s most recent situation started when a customer lodged a complaint against him for theft, but that he ignored the bar and ceased meeting his dues and other membership responsibilities after that.


The former House Speaker of the Representatives rebuffed all attempts to contact him at his Peachtree Road house in Atlanta, according to information provided to The Gazette.

Gbajabiamila was put on probation for five years starting on July 2, 2015, and on July 1, 2020, his membership was officially terminated permanently.

Gbajabiamila was the Speaker of the House of Representatives when he committed his offences in the United States. He was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia on June 29, 2001.

He is no longer permitted to practise law in Georgia. He’s finished,” a representative told The Gazette.


On February 26, 2007, the Georgian Supreme Court unanimously decided to suspend Gbajabiamila for 36 months, after he admitted stealing $25,000 from a client.

The former Speaker was reinstated after carrying out his term, but he was ultimately fired after allegedly committing yet another offence.


“Mr Gbajabiamila, who has only been a member of the bar since 2001, admits that he accepted payment of $25,000 as settlement of a client’s personal injury claims, deposited those funds in his attorney trust account in January 2003, failed to promptly disburse those funds to his client, withdrew those funds for his own use, closed his practice and moved out of the country,” the court said at the time.

In order to receive a lesser punishment, such as disbarment, Gbajabiamila, who had already served as a federal lawmaker for over four years prior to the decision, allegedly gave the money back in 2006, a year before the verdict.
