Outrage as Buhari appoints Dead men to fill board positions”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has congratulated members of the party in the state that were appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as heads and members of boards of federal parastatals and commissions.

The statement added: "As a stalwart of the APC in the South-South, President Buhari believes that the party greatly benefited from the octogenarian's charismatic leadership and wealth of experience as a politician".

The Presidency on Sunday informed Nigerians that President Buhari will address the nation by 7 am on New Year's Day without giving further details.

Others are Garba Attahiru, a former chairman of Kaduna South Local Government who passed on past year but was appointed on the board of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenegoa, and Umar Dange, a former secretary of APC elders committee in Sokoto, who was appointed to the board of FMC Ibute Meta. "We urge the President to consider Ekiti State for more appointments and more employment-generating projects", Olatunbosun said.

The president approved the constitution of the Governing Boards of Agencies and Parastatals, under some Ministries, as well as the appointment of eminently qualified Nigerians to fill the Board positions.

Malam Garba Shehu, the President's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, stated this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Saturday.

"This list is a historical list".

Ms. Ezekwesili, in a series of tweets on her verified Twitter handle, expressed disappointment at the presidency for releasing such list as well as defending the errors contained in the list.

Shehu however assured Nigerians that nominees who were confirmed dead would be replaced.

"The panel did its work and turned in its report early in 2017".

The development was communicated in a statement released by Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation. They were asked to go and review the list. "I can tell you that numerous initial names were also the same names forwarded by the governors except in few cases".
