Muiz Banire Talks Tough About Suspension, Reveals He Had No Candidates In Lagos LG Polls


The last has not been heard of the crisis rocking Lagos APC as the embattled National Legal Adviser of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Muiz Banire SAN has finally revealed that he was never disturbed by the politics in his Mushin ward that led to some officers announcing his suspension.

BlackBox Nigeria gathered from his interview while on Fireworks with Bukola Samuel-Wemimo of TVC News. He disclosed that the conflict that was experienced in the Ward level of the party was inevitable.

He revealed that the conflict that led to some officers pronouncing his suspension was as a result of himself endorsing a particular candidate which later did not emerge as the flagbearer and many speculated he was going to work against the Party’s interest.

“There must always be conflict in a party, because different interests are bound. It is normal, nothing unusual. My suspension was merely a misrepresentation by some officers. We deal with such activities at the National Level, it is common with politics in the ward level.”

Banire also added that it was normal for a political leader to endorse any aspirant of the party which he did during the electioneering. He also debunked speculation that he was a godfather to some people in the ward politics.

He revealed that he is not professional politician as he stated that he also has issues with other States as Lagos State is not the only State that has grudges against him.

He also maintained that the activities of United Action for Change, a non governmental organisation he is a convener for a particular candidate was not supported by himself as the group is not a political group.
