LAGOS – A youth coalition in Lagos State has appealed to the three Senators representing Lagos at the National Assembly to rescind their decision not to support Dr. Muiz Banire’s nomination for the chairmanship position of the Asset Management Company of Nigeria, AMCON.
At a press conference addressed by a Coalition of Lagos Youths, led by Folajimi Kosoko, Mademaku Abayomi Noah, Adesanya Shaheed and Yakubu Eleto, weekend, the group said the Senators’ move is not in the interest of Lagosians.
The statement reads: “The petition coming at this time further points to the fact that Lagos indigenes have been relegated to the background in their State, they had been beaten, battered, forced to take back seat, they have been robbed of key positions in political appointments and have not been allowed to play key roles in the management of their affairs.”
The group threw their weight behind Dr. Banire, who they claimed is an achiever, who has distinguished himself in the legal profession and politics.
The group, however, threatened to pass a vote of no confidence on Senator Olamilekan Yayi, Gbenga Ashafa, and Oluremi Tinubu if they fail to toe a path of honour by supporting Dr. Banire, while thanking President Muhammadu Buhari for considering Lagos for the slot.
