Board Appointment: APDA Urges Presidency To Be More Diligent

The Advanced People’s Democratic Alliance (APDA) has called on the Presidency to be more diligent and thorough in the process of appointing officials to political offices.

The party also urged the presidency to avoid the embarrassment being witnessed recently over the appointment of seven dead people into the board of federal parastatals and agencies.

A statement by national publicity secretary, APDA, Mr Tosin Adeyanju, noted that the list would otherwise have accommodated other qualified living Nigerians.

The party decried the “explanation of some presidential aides that the board appointments were compiled since 2015 making it difficult to identify the dead amongst them, citing the inclusion of the name of a recently sacked House of Representatives member that lost his seat in 2017 as a result of Supreme Court ruling as chairman of one of the boards.”

The party, however, warned  the Presidency not to take Nigerians for granted but be dedicated to doing what is right at all times, in discharge of its duties to the nation.

It frowned at a “situation whereby sensitive issues that borders on board appointments would be treated in such a shabby manner with officers responsible apportioning blames and not taking responsibility for this national embarrassment.

“We called on Mr President to sanction officials responsible for this national embarrassment to avoid future avoidable mistakes,” the statement added.
