Femi Gbajabiamila, representing Surulere I federal constituency in Lagos, on Tuesday, emerged the 9th Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives.






 ‘Gbaja’, as fondly called, polled 283 votes to defeat Bago who garnered 76 votes out of the total votes cast.

He enrolled at the King Williams College, Isle of Man, United Kingdom for his ‘A Levels’ and graduated in 1980.

He returned to Nigeria and was accepted into the University of Lagos for LLB (Bachelor of Law) degree programme. He graduated with honors in 1983, proceeded to the Nigerian Law School and was called to the Nigerian bar in 1984.


Years later, Gbajabiamila established his own law firm, Femi Gbaja and Co. on Broad Street, Lagos, before traveling to the United States for further education.

He attended John Marshall Law School in Atlanta Georgia where he graduated top of his class earning himself a Juris Doctorate.

He started his journey in politics when he joined the defunct Alliance for Democracy (AD) and won his first term election in the House of Representatives in 2003.

In 2014, Gbajabiamila as the Leader of opposition in the House led his colleagues into the merger that gave birth to the APC.

  12. Femi 5 whole terms!!!! Nigerian politicians are nothing but greedy. Once they clinch that seat, they want to die there and if possible pass it over to their children after they are gone. I hope this selfishness will end one day.
