Fouad Oki: Tinubu playing god by opposing Banire’s appointment

Fouad Oki, a factional chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, says Bola Tinubu is playing god by opposing the appointment of Muiz Banire as chairman of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

Solomon Adeola, lawmaker representing Lagos west senatorial district, had laid a petition signed by two other senators from the state against Banire’s nomination.

But in a statement on Wednesday, Oki condemned the senators’ objection, accusing Tinubu, a national leader of the party, of being behind the lawmakers’ action.

“The appointment of Dr. Muiz Banire, SAN as chairman of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) should elicit excitement and a sense of pride that Lagos dtate was blessed with Grade A board appointment, instead his nomination was met by a scurrilous objection by the three senators representing Lagos State,” he said in the statement.

“We have it on authority that all the efforts to thwart the confirmation was orchestrated by Mr. Bola Tinubu including directives on late Monday, 23rd July 2018 which was conveyed by Senator Solomon Olamilekan (aka Yayi) to his colleagues in a desperate attempt to sway the Senate President and other Senators into his unholy attempts.

“Tinubu’s personal determination to play god on the matter of Federal nominations and appointments into key positions has gone too far. You will recall his similar battle to scuttle the Federal appointments of Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN and several other individuals from Lagos State. Must he be the sole determiner of the aspiration and destiny of every Party member?”

Calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to weigh in on the matter, Oki said they are poised to take full ownership of the party.
