President Muhammadu Buhari’s has ordered the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, to review the recent appointment list into the boards of Federal Government’s agencies which contained some dead people.
The review is meant to ascertain all nominees that need replacement on the list released last Friday following uproar that some dead individuals were included.
With the review, the inauguration of the living appointees by the relevant ministers are expected to be put on hold as they may not get their appointment letters until after the revised list must have been approved.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed the President’s directive for a review of the entire list. Shehu said those saddled with the responsibility had gone far in their assignment and would soon present their report to the President. In all, two hundred and nine chairmen and one thousand, two hundred and fifty-eight board members were announced.
