Buhari’s shameful list

President Buhari approves the appointment of 209 board chairmen and 1,258 board members.

Reverend Christopher Utov, who died in March 2017, is on the board of Nigerian Institute of Social and Economic Research and Chief Donald Ugbaja, who died last month, on the board of the Consumer Protection Council.

Okpozo died in December 2016 and was granted the honour of a public condolence statement by President Buhari who however appeared to appoint him to chair the board of the National Press Council (NPC) in December 2017.

The Presidency maintained that the appearance of dead persons names was a mistake, which would be corrected. The President asked all state chapters of the APC to forward 50 names for appointments to the SGF through the national headquarters of the party.
