Dead Persons in Buhari's Board Appointment Rise to 7

President Buhari Approves 1,258 Board Members See Complete List

One of the explanations for the names of the dead on the list is that it was compiled long ago. The third man Senator Francis Okpozo, was appointed as chairman of the Nigerian Press Council.

President Muhammadu Buhari will on Monday make a national broadcast to commemorate the New Year. The president also appointed Chief Donald Ugbaja as a member of the Consumer Protection Council (CPC).

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

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.

A disturbing fact also arising from Mr Shehu's explanation is that the federal government did not deem it fit to contact the persons whose names were included on the list and may indeed have carried out no forms of assessment to ascertain their capacity for the jobs for which they may have been nominated by their political benefactors. They include late Alhaji Umar Dange, said to be a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto State.

Another ally of Atiku that made it into the list is Bashir Ibrahim Ibrahim is factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM was appointed member of the board of Benin-Owena River Basin Development Authority.

A Kano governorship aspirant, Ibrahim El-Amin, popularly known as Little, was appointed board member of the Federal Medical Centre, Owo. It was learnt that Bunza was a staunch supporter of the APC who served as the sole administrator of Jega Local Government Area of Kebbi State.

Tune in to hear what the Buhari-led administration is up to for 2018. While some Nigerians said that the president and his party is confused, others like former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode have gone as far as saying that Buhari is suffering from a out of hand dementia.

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.

But reacting to the issue, spokesman of the President, Mr Garba Shehu, said the error in the list was not enough to castigate the President for.

He described the list as "historical", explaining that it was compiled in 2015 and that nobody can stop people from dying between then and now.
