Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Mushin Local Government Area of Lagos has suspended the National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire, from the party citing anti-party activities.
The suspension followed recommendation by his ward (Ward C, Ilasamaja, Mushin).
According to the Acting Secretary of the Ward, Taofeek Ajani-Balogun, the decision to suspend Banire from the party was reached during the ward meeting held to review the last local government elections in the ward.
“After a critical assessment of individual activities and the performance of the party during the last elections, members of the party in Ward C, Ilasamaja, Mushin unanimously voted for the immediate suspension of Banire from participating in party activities in the Ward and his removal from office as National Legal Adviser.
The party members accused Banire of causing his supporters to disrupt the peaceful process of efficient organisation of the party, particularly in respect of the campaigns of candidates of the party and causing fear and apprehension among party loyalists during the elections.
The party EXCO in Mushin Local Government further recommended to the state chapter the expulsion of Banire from the party,” he said.
