Appointment Of Dead Men Into Boards Of Parastatals: Presidency Explains by OKDnigeria: 2:46pm On Dec 30, 2017
The presidency has reacted to the controversy generated by its appointment, Friday evening, of 1,468 Nigerians into the boards of agencies and parastatals.

The list generated controversy after names of some dead persons were found among the appointees.
PREMIUM TIMES checks also show duplications and appointments of individuals that are no longer in the ruling All Progressives Congress.

The Presidency however downplayed the matter Saturday as, according to a spokesman of the president, there was nothing scandalous about the list.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES by telephone, Garba Shehu said “the list has a history” which explains the controversy around it.

“In 2015, Mr. President requested all state chapters of the party to submit names of 50 party members for board appointments,” Mr. Shehu said.

He said the names where compiled by the national secretariat of the APC and forwarded to the then secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal.

“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”.

Mr Shehu however said action was delayed on the report of the committee headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as President Muhammadu Buhari took ill.

“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,” Mr. Shehu explained.

Mr Shehu admitted that errors were committed but added that “no human undertaking can be free of mistakes”.

He said the errors identified with the list were not enough to describe the exercise as scandalous, insisting that “there is no scandal”.

The spokesperson said all errors in the list would be corrected.

Na lie go kill una for that presidency. You told us earlier that nobody can nominate candidate for Buhari. See what governance has been reduced to in Nigeria. smh


It's like Nigerians are the most timid and docile people on earth to continue to accept these bunch of people currently occupying Aso Rock. I've never heard such type of explanation from the presidency, it's a pity

Garba Shehu just succeeded in telling us that the new SGF and aides of PMB are so incompetent that they will compile and release a sensitive list like that without cross-checkng it.
Do we need another evidence that with men like this at the helm of affair,Nigeria is in deep trouble......

NB. I still have the feeling that the media team of PMB are either clueless or deliberately sabotaging PMB...

How can the people in the presidency fail to verify such a thing as little as the list of appointees before making it public?

How do we continue to entrust complex governance issues into the hands of these people?

Granted that humans are prone to mistakes but the President ( if he's truly in charge) has to make some people pay for this gross negligence.

Obi Igwe of the blessed memory said in one of his albums "Operation Change 98" that in Nigeria...

The distribution of amenities is based on tribe.

Award of Contracts goes to Old Boy.

Employment is based on nepotism

While Promotion and Appointment goes to Party Members.

What kind of nauseating question is this?


Do you know the job description of a secretary of the federation?


Going by your logic, why didn't the APC secretariat recall the document when its been confirmed that some of the appointees are dead?


Why didn't the vice president that headed the adhoc committee remove the names of the dead and ask for replacement from the appropriate states?
