We are certain to leave APC – Nat. Legal Adviser, Banire

The National Legal Adviser of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr. Muiz Banire, has disclosed that it is certain that he and other members of a reformist group within the ruling party will dump the party for another platform.

Dr. Banire gave this hint in an interview he granted The Sun where he condemned political godfatherism and candidate’s imposition explaining that they are undemocratic principles that can affect APC’s fortune.

“They have already tagged us rebels but we are undaunted. If the APC leadership called it rebellion, we don’t mind. We see ourselves as reformers. I always believe in the constitution.

“Let’s follow the constitution and what the law says, this has always been my position. Some people in APC who believe in the status quo see me as a threat to entrenched interests. But I will continue to canvass equity, fairness and justice,” Banire said.

When asked if his comment was not an affront to APC’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s hegemony, “As far as I’m concerned, our crusade for reform is not about Tinubu, it is about the need to reform the system. It is a systemic problem. I don’t personalise issues.

“It is the party’s leadership that is concerned, and Tinubu is not part of the leadership exco in Lagos State or at the national level. It is the leadership at those two levels that must do something about these reforms,” he answered.

Dr. Banire said further: “You see, some of us are not crazy about position. We are in politics to add value, and if they make it difficult for you to add value to a particular system, you look for another platform.

“You can see that we even have a platform now to ventilate our position on any issue and that is United Action for Change. It is even a matter of time we exit from APC and concentrate on this platform which we believe will add value to the system.”
