Former legal adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muiz Banire, SAN, has opined that the sudden resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu and National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore is due to pressure.
Banire suggested that the resignation is unusual with certain challenges which are not visible to people. Banire in an interview said, “I have been reading Mr Lukman Saliu for some time; he has been raising a lot of issues, particularly bordering on maladministration of the party, misappropriation funds and so on.
“Well, that could be part of it because I know as a matter of fact, in NWC sometimes those are usually issues that usually confronts or challenges the body”.
“So, it’s not unlikely that it is as a result of such issues that have been in the public space for some time now; maybe it has reached its peak now and couldn’t be absorbed again. They probably reacted. “I’m not too sure that the resignation could have been voluntarily, in my view, I might be wrong; I probably believe that maybe the pressure of other colleagues of theirs forced them eventually to tender their resignation.”
