The Nigerian Senate has confirmed Muiz Banire as chairman of the governing board of the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

Banire, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), was nominated for the position by President Muhammadu Buhari in July.

The former legal adviser of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was confirmed after a report was presented by Rafiu Ibrahim, chairman senate committee on banking, insurance and other financial institutions.

The lawmakers confirmed him after it was put to a voice vote by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

All the senators from Lagos state had kicked against the nomination and submitted a petition to stop Banire’s confirmation.

But the SAN had reacted saying that he did not need a political job to survive.

“In the first place, let me recognize the constitutional right of the three senators to express their views without hindrance. It is part of the democratic tenets we all cherish and strive to protect at all times,” he had said.

“However, it is necessary to point out to interested or concerned members of the Nigerian citizenry that my nomination in the first place is not a quota appointment (as the three politicians and distinguished senators may have wrongly perceived) requiring their special approval to deal with.

“I was nominated simply as a Nigerian in whom the appointer has a lot of confidence and who is prepared to give his all in service of his fatherland.

“Beyond the above, let me also state clearly that I am blessed with so many alternative contact addresses and consequently, do not desperately need a political job to survive.”

Uduaghan plans for Delta South in the senate

Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, former Governor of Delta State and Chieftain of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari for transmitting his ministerial list to the National Assembly in record time. He also congratulated the ministerial nominees for making the cut from a pool of eminent party men and women who could serve in President Buhari Next Level government.

In a statement signed by his special adviser on media, Mr. Monoyo Edon, and made available to The Witness on Tuesday, Dr Uduaghan said, “for us in Delta State, Festus Keyamo‘s appointment did not come as a surprise to us. Festus has distinguished himself and has shown capacity in his previous post as spokesperson of our Presidential Campaign Council. His appointment is very welcomed to the APC family in Delta State.”

“Some of my brother former Governors and other nominees that made the cut have something tangible to contribute to the Next Level program of Mr. President. I know them and I am sure they can function creditably well with any portfolio given to them at the end of the day.”

Dr. Uduaghan was also full of praise for President Muhammadu Buhari who yielded to the masses’ pressure to name a cabinet before the Senate goes on long recess.

“President Buhari has, on several occasion showed that he listens to the masses, whom he holds their mandate so passionately. We are all happy that his cabinet would be named in a matter of days after the National Assembly successfully screens all of them. President Buhari is committed to the success and development of this country. We have seen that with the kind of persons he has chosen to serve with him in this government.

“Congratulations to all the ministerial nominees. Congratulations to our great party for doing the appropriate thing at a time Nigerians wish this government is firing on full throttle.”
