All Progressives Congress’ legal adviser, Muiz Banire, has quit. Banire is being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for an alleged N500,000 bribe given to a judge.

Banire, who made his decision known in a letter to the party’s National Executive Committee through the National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, said he took the step to protect the image of the party. A copy of the letter was also sent to the President, Muhammadu Buhari and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo.
