I’m not fight­ing any­body — Banire

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

The Na­tional Le­gal Ad­viser of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Dr. Muiz Banire, who was last week sus­pended by the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee of Mushin Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment of La­gos State, has de­clared that he has no prob­lem with any mem­ber or leader of the party.

The na­tional ex­ec­u­tive of the party had voided the sus­pen­sion, say­ing the lo­cal chap­ter of the party had no pow­ers to sus­pend a na­tional of­fi­cer.

Speak­ing to jour­nal­ists in Abuja, Banire said the is­sue of his sus­pen­sion had been re­solved with the clar­i­fi­ca­tion made by the na­tional lead­er­ship.

He said as far as he was con­cerned, he had no grudge against any­one as he re­mained the na­tional le­gal ad­viser of the party.

“There is no sus­pen­sion; the is­sue has been dealt with since. The na­tional ex­ec­u­tive has told them that it is a waste of time; my party is in­tact.

Banire stressed that his re­la­tion­ship with the party lead­er­ship in La­gos State was still very cor­dial, say­ing he had no prob­lem with any­body.

Speak­ing on the chances of APC in 2019 against the back­drop of the resur­gence of PDP, he said, “We have ab­so­lute chance. But the truth of the mat­ter is that the party nat­u­rally would be chal­lenged; there is no doubt about that. But we would tri­umph at the end of the day be­cause we have done much as a party, we have im­pacted on the coun­try pos­i­tively.”
