Dead Persons in Buhari's Board Appointment Rise to 7

Another ally of Atiku that made it into the list is Bashir Ibrahim Ibrahim is factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM was appointed member of the board of Benin-Owena River Basin Development Authority.

The founder of Fidei Polytechnic, Gboko, the first private polytechnic in Northern Nigeria was in April 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.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has congratulated members of the party in the state that were appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as heads and members of boards of federal parastatals and commissions.

The statement read in part: "Withdrawing the appointments and directing and allowing the civil service systems to follow due process to reappoint chairpersons and members to the boards of these agencies and parastatals would bring the government's practices and operations into conformity with Nigeria's global anticorruption obligations, particularly the UN Convention against Corruption".

Russell Simmons Responds #NotMe To Rape Allegations As NYPD Opens Investigation
According to Kelly, Simmons attempted to rape her in his apartment back in 1991 when she was 26-years-old and he was 34. Although Simmons claims his intent is "not to diminish the #MeToo movement in anyway", that's exactly what he's doing.

Besides, how would an 82-year-old Chair the Nigerian Press Council? "It should be the practice of this government to make board appointments on the basis of ability, and not because of political influence or connection".

"The constitution of the boards with the appointments is a demonstration of this government's efforts aimed at building strong institutions of governance, and by extension, improving the quality of policy formulation and supervision", Mustapha said.

The appointments take immediate effect and Ministers are advised to inaugurate the boards after letters of appointment have been issued. "The government is equally obligated to establish systems to prevent conflicts of interest and influence peddling in board appointments".

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

Mr Okpozo, 81, was appointed Chairman of the Nigerian Press Council. The retired deputy inspector general of police died on November 29, 2017, exactly a month before his appointment was announced.
