“Nigeria’s Presidency has finally reacted to the inclusion of 3 dead Nigerians in President Buhari’s recent appointment.”
Media aide to the president Garba Shehu, in a telephone interview with Premium Times, opened up about the appointees for boards of various Federal government parastatals that was released yesterday December 29th, appointment that had 3 dead Nigerians included.
According to Shehu, those appointed have a ‘history’ with the presidency.
Shehu continued saying upon Buhari’s election as President, APC’s state chapters were asked to submit names of 50 party members to be considered for board appointment, however, appointments couldn’t happen due to Governors protesting against it due to not being carried along. Buhari’s ill health also paused the appointment process.
He however said the errors would be corrected immediately.
“The president’s trips for medical attention slowed down completion of the process,” he said, until when Mr Buhari decided to revisit the matter recently.
“The current SGF was only directed to complete that process by releasing the list which he apparently did without altering it.”
