The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the reported suspension of the Party’s National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN) by the executive committee in Mushin Local government area of its Lagos State chapter as a nullity.
“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. By the Party’s constitution, such powers reside with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Party,” Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, APC National Publicity Secretary said in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday.
The APC spokesperson noted that the Party advises has the necessary structure and constitution provisions 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,” Abdullahi advised further.
