• Politics and high jinks destroy ex-Lagos commissioner’s relationship with godfather

Muiz Banire rocks. The dashing politician tickled Lagos from the base to the rafters, like a Victorian Lord, tickling the fancy of the Queen and a fawning nobility. There is no gainsaying Banire won the heart and applause of Lagos’ high society as he clocked the golden age of 50, last week. Echoes of the classy shindig reverberates through the nooks and cranny of Lagos even as you read.

Banire, a three-time commissioner of Lagos, threw a colourful birthday party at the Eko Hotel & Suites, where he hosted top politicians, business moguls, corporate players and legal luminaries. In attendance were, Governor Ibikunle Amosun and his wife, former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi and others were seen celebrating with him.

Predictably, Banire’s political benefactor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and some other top politicians were absent at the party. Tinubu made Muiz, no doubt. They used to be very close and inseparable, but in politics, there are no permanent friends, or enemies. All there is, are permanent interests.

It is however, saddening to see how politics has destroyed the relationship between Banire and his estranged godfather, Tinubu. Their relationship has deteriorated to the point that Banire excitedly lampoons Tinubu, criticizing every action of the APC national leader. Politics has indeed, rent asunder, the erstwhile rosy relationship between Banire and his political godfather.
