The National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr.Muiz Adeyemi Banire, has denied that he bounced at the residence of the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Banire was reacting to a story that went viral on the social media few days ago that Tinubu gave him a cold shoulder when he visited him at his Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi residence.
Banire did not refute the fact he visited Tinubu, he however denounced the story that he was denied access to the APC National Leader.
“The story was malicious and baseless. It is a clear falsehood,” the APC National Legal Adviser stated.
According to him, “it is just the creation of the writer who sat at a corner to conjure stories from the moon.
“I do not have any problem with my leader. Yes, I’ve been to Bourdillon two times this year and I have people that were with me. Let the writer(s) inform the world the people that were present when I was turned back. The first time I went there, there were various people including Zulu Baba Ewe, Rotimi Agunsoye and many other people. The second time was the day our presidential candidate Buhari came to campaign in Lagos; I went there with Governor Aregbesola, ex- Ekiti governor, Segun Oni, Hon Bayo Osinowo, Tunde Balogun, Mr ibukun Fakeye and many others. We even ate together with the likes of Dele Alake and some other people thereafter we left together for Asiwaju’s private office within the house. Asiwaju is still alive also for further clarification.. So, you can imagine the level some people could go to write rubbish because they want to create hostility that’s not there. It is wicked to want to denigrate the man (Asiwaju) in that manner. My supplication to God is that what they wish for me will continue to be their portion at every step of their journey in life including that of their unborn generation.”
