APC disregards suspension of National Legal Adviser

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the claimed suspension of the party’s National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire, by its executive committee in Mushin local government area of Lagos State.

In a release issued and signed on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC said the local chapter of the party did not have such powers to suspend a national officer.
Abdullahi said such powers reside with the National Executive Committee (NEC) according to the party’s constitution.
He advised that whatever issues there might be, the 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 into the matter to achieve amicable settlement,” he said.
