Buhari appoints 3 dead men as board members

The post FFK takes another swipe at Buhari's board appointments appeared first on Vanguard News.

Mr Okpozo, 81, was appointed Chairman of the Nigerian Press Council.

Reverend Christopher Utov, who died in March 2017, is on the board of Nigerian Institute of Social and Economic Research and Chief Donald Ugbaja, who died last month, on the board of the Consumer Protection Council.

"We also thank our leaders that made sure that Ekiti members of APC were not short-changed in the current exercise".

The founder of Fidei Polytechnic, Gboko, the first private polytechnic in Northern Nigeria was in April 2017.

Soon after the list of the appointments was released on Friday, which had Buhari appointing 209 board chairmen and 1,258 members into some government agencies and parastatals, it was initially discovered that the names of three dead persons were included in the list. The President asked all state chapters of the APC to forward 50 names for appointments to the SGF through the national headquarters of the party.

"This list is a historical list".

He said the list which was released by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) was prepared over two years ago and nobody could stop some of those included on the list from dying between then and now.

While Mr Shehu may be correct about the transient nature of life, it remains puzzling that the government put together a list in October 2016 that included the name of Attahiru who died as far back as May, 2016, five clear months before the list was supposedly compiled according to the presidential spokesman.

"The list has a history which explains the controversy around it".

"The report was disputed by state governors who said they were not carried along or the list was not representative enough".

While calling on the new appointees to do Ekiti State proud in their various assignments, the party urged the President to consider Ekiti State for more appointments and also locate more employment-generating projects in the state.
