Buhari Orders 'Dead Men' Appointment List Review
The dust is yet to settle over President Muhammadu Buhari's recent appointment of dead people into the boards of Federal Government agencies.
The government has tried to offer an explanation but Nigerians are not buying it.
The President has further ordered the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, to review the entire list.
The review, it was learnt, is meant to ascertain all nominees that need replacement on the list released last Friday.
It was further learnt that apart from those who were identified as having died before the announcement of their appointments, at least one person has also died between when the list was made public and now.
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.
In all, 209 chairmen and 1,258 board members were announced.
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 to our correspondent on the telephone on Thursday.
Shehu said those saddled with the responsibility had gone far in their assignment and would soon present their report to the President.
He stated that apart from the dead persons, those who have left the ruling All Progressives Congress but were included in the list would also be removed.
