President Buhari Approves 1258 Board Members, See Complete List”

The post FFK takes another swipe at Buhari's board appointments appeared first on Vanguard News. The third man Senator Francis Okpozo, was appointed as chairman of the Nigerian Press Council.

Also, the President appointed Rev Christopher Utov as a Member of Nigerian Institute of Social and Economic Research.

Closer perusing of the recently released list of appointments by President Muhammadu Buhari into the boards of some government agencies and parastatals has shown that six persons, and not just three as earlier reported in some media, found their names into the list.

"We also thank our leaders that made sure that Ekiti members of APC were not short-changed in the current exercise". Mr. Ugbaja, a former deputy inspector general of police, died on November 29, 2017.

One also finds it hard to accept that the government with its array of staff similarly could not cross-check the list to remove the names of persons who died subsequently after the list was compiled.

He said the president requested for the submission of 50 names each by the state chapters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in 2015, which were later compiled by the national secretariat of the party.

But it was discovered that in the list were some dead persons and this has generated mixed reactions, with some lambasting the Presidency for the error.

"However, complaint arose from some Governors who felt they were not carried along in the process".

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.

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.

"The list has a history which explains the controversy around it". The president also appointed Chief Donald Ugbaja as a member of the Consumer Protection Council (CPC).
