APC State Chairmen To Meet Oyegun Over Board Appointments
There is disquiet within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the list of appointees to the boards of federal government parastatals.
The party had on Saturday disassociated itself from the controversial list, which included 8 dead Nigerians as board members.
The list was released on December 29 by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.
The National Chairman of the APC, John Oyegun, said that though the party participated in drawing up the initial list of appointees, it was not consulted before the final list was sent to the President.
Many of the state chapters of the party were said to have also expressed dissatisfaction with the list.
Following the discovery of the names of eight dead persons on the list and the subsequent criticism it attracted, the President was forced to order the review of the entire exercise.
In line with the directive given by the President for a review of the list, Oyegun has summoned the state chairmen to meet with him on Thursday in Abuja.
It was gathered that the consultation with state chairmen was necessary in view of the fact that their input might be needed to effect changes to the original list submitted to the SGF.
