President BUHARI has directed the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, BOSS MUSTAPHA, to review the entire list into the boards of Federal Government’s agencies and parastatals recently released by the presidency.
This followed the outrage that trailed the appearance of names of dead people on the list containing 209 chairmen and 1,258 board members.
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.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, GARBA SHEHU, who confirmed the President’s directive said apart from the dead persons, those who have left the APC but included in the list would also be removed.
