United Party for National Development (UPND) Vice President for Political Affairs Dr. Canisius Banda has said he met President Michael Sata recently to discuss some national issues.

Reacting to reports circulating questioning his motive for visiting State House, Dr. Banda said he met President Sata on 15th November, 2013 to present an important report which he had prepared.  He said the report was on health issues.

Steadfastly disassociating himself from suggestions that he went to State House for bad motives, Dr. Banda said he was a senior member of UPND who would continue to be loyal to the Party and discharge his duties diligently and to the best of his ability.  He said that he is not like many people who go to State House for their personal gain.

Dr. Banda said although he went to State House in his personal capacity, he believed the fruits of his effort will immensely benefit the nation.
