President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, allegedly appointed a dead person into the board of one the federal government agencies.
News reporters through Daily Post had earlier reported that Chief Tobias Chukwuemeka Okwuru is one of the member-nominees (Ebonyi State) in Buhari’s letter to the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.
This is the first time the president included name (s) of demised person (s) in his list of service candidates.
The president in the letter to Lawan, requested for Okwuru’s confirmation by the Senate as a board member of the Federal Character Commission (FCC).
However, according to the Daily Sun, the appointee died on February 27, 2020.
Also known as Aliezza, Okwuuru was a former member of the House of Representatives from 2011 to 2015.
In December 2017, Buhari included no fewer than eight deceased persons in a list of new appointments into the governing boards of agencies and parastatals.
Some of the names then included Late Reverend Christopher Utova, Late Senator Francis Okpozo and Late Chief Donald Ugbaja.
