Banire Calls For Internal Democracy, As The Fear Of “banirephobia” Loom In Lagos by morblow: 8:17am On Apr 21, 2018
The All Progressive Congress, APC legal Adviser, Muiz Adeyemi Banire, SAN has called for internal democracy ahead of the 2019 election even as he accused the disgruntled members of the party who purportedly suspended him from the party to be suffering from what he called “banirephobia”

He said they belong to the insignificant group which opposes internal democracy of the party. Banire who was filing questions on a discussion programme “The Discuss” further stated that those who also accused him of benefiting from god-fatherism and imposition in the past are clowns and are suffering from deficiency of grammar as his position as National Legal Adviser is not an elective post but rather base on appointment.

He called on the members who have genuine interest of the party at heart to remain steadfast and allow internal democracy to prevail so as to avoid what happened in Osun state where the party lost Senator Adeleke because of imposition of candidates.

He expressed reservation about the situation in APC, Lagos saying, there is arrogance among the leadership which was not the case during the administration of the former Governor, Raji Babatunde Fashola and confessed that he has no access to Governor Ambode unlike Fashola whom he said was accessible even at night.

He recalled that he used to get in touch with former Governor Fashola between the hours of 11pm to 2am at most and blamed the State party Executives for the predicament.

Ahead of 2019 election, Banire advised the party, to do the needful which according to him include; ensuring internal democracy, stop imposition of candidates, follow the party constitution, law and guidelines. For those still walloping on the purported suspension, the APC Legal Adviser had a piece of advice for them and that, he said was for them to stop being jittery and be ready to face the reality of the day which is no other but the reality of internal democracy.
