Muiz Banire, two-time Lagos commissioner, has re-emerged on the political scene.
Against all odds, Banire has been appointed as Chairman of Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), by President Muhammadu Buhari. Banire is the former legal adviser of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). His appointment is subject to the confirmation by the senate. On Tuesday, Senate President Bukola Saraki read a letter from Buhari, seeking the confirmation of Banire and 13 members of the Federal Civil Service Commission.
