APC’s national secretariat voids Banire’s suspension

National leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has voided the suspension of the party’s National Legal Adviser, Muiz Banire, by his ward and ratified by the leadership of the party in Mushin local government area of Lagos State.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said in a statement in Abuja that only the National Executive Committee (NEC) of APC has the constitutional mandate to suspend a national officer.

The three- paragraph statement reads: “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.

“The party advises that whatever issues there might be, our party 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.”
