Banire Faults Suspension, Allege Lagos Involvement

Image result for Muiz Banire, has been suspended by the Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress in Mushin Local Government.

The national legal adviser of All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Muiz Banire, has faulted his alleged suspension by the party chapter in Mushin Local Government, Lagos state, even as he pointed accusing finger as the state government.

Banire’s reaction came barely hours after leadership of the party issued a statement yesterday suspending him for allegedly engaging in anti-party activities. The legal adviser in statement made available to Vanguard, urged Nigerian to ignore the suspension, saying, it is evidence of the crass lawlessness. He noted that the issuance of the allege suspension were not genuine members of the party because they would have known in the party constitution, guidelines and body that could suspend him was clearly stated. 

The statement which read in part: “My attention has been drawn to a press release purportedly emanating from the Lagos State Government on behalf of some APC members. Assuming, without conceding, that this were genuine members of the party, it is evidence of the crass lawlessness. 

“If these crooked elements were members of the Party, they would know that by the Constitution of the Party, it is the National Executive Committee that can remove a national officer of the party responsible for the 36 states of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory. 

“I, therefore, urge the members of the public to ignore these undesirable and mischievous elements together with their antics. Their actions showcase their desperation to foist lawlessness on the Party and the citizenry at large. 

“It is important for me to state that their aim is to cause me unwarranted embarrassment and intimidation with the hope that I, in my usual responsible way, would step aside or resign from my position as the National Legal Adviser of the Party. However, due to the monstrosity of irresponsibility and illicitness of their conducts and agenda, I am duty bound to remain in office till the expiration of my tenure. 

Our great Party cannot be allowed to surrender to the idiocy of any person or group whatsoever,” he added.
