APC  National Legal Adviser Not Suspended, Party Says


    The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied suspending its National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire, contrary to rumours making the rounds.

    A statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC) Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi described news of his suspension as unfounded.

    “The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to the purported suspension of the Party’s National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN) by the Party’s executive committee in Mushin Local government area of Lagos State.
    “We wish to state categorically that the purported suspension is a nullity as the local chapter of the Party does not have such powers to suspend a national officer. According to the Party’s constitution, such powers reside with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Party,” it stated.
    The party said that whatever issues there might be, its structure and constitution provide ample avenues for redress and dispute resolution.

    “If the local chapter is unable to achieve a resolution, the NWC can and will wade in the matter to achieve amicable settlement,” it emphasized.
