Board Appointments: Appearance Of Dead Persons Names Will Be Corrected, Says Buhari’s Aide
Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has said that the appearance of dead persons names was a mistake which would be corrected.
Recall that the Presidency, on Friday, released list of newly appointed chairmen and members of the boards of government parastatals and agencies.
According to Garba Shehu, the list was prepared before President Muhammadu Buhari took ill and was released by the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha without any alteration.
He said the President requested 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.
Subsequently, he revealed, the names were submitted to the then SGF, Babachir Lawal.
He added, “However, complaint arose from some governors who felt they were not carried along in the process. To answer this, the President constituted a committee under the Vice President to review and reflect the interest of the governors.”
