We construct a new iterative scheme by hybrid methods and prove strong convergence theorem for approximation of a common fixed point of two countable families of closed relatively quasi-nonexpansive mappings which is also a solution to a system of equilibrium problems in a uniformly smooth and strictly convex real Banach space with Kadec-Klee property using the properties of generalized -projection operator. Using this result, we discuss strong convergence theorem concerning variational inequality and convex minimization problems in Banach spaces. Our results extend many known recent results in the literature.
