FG’s appointment of dead persons shows appreciation of service – Buhari Youth Organisation
The Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO) has urged Nigerians to show understanding over the seeming shortcomings in the recent board appointments of government parastal agencies and departments by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The appeal followed the criticisms that trailed the list, which included the duplication of names and appointment of dead persons.
The Lagos State chapter of the group made the appeal in a statement jointly signed by Mr. AbdulWaheed Odunuga, the coordinator; and Mr. Adekunle Aderibigbe, General Secretary, on Tuesday in Lagos.
“BYO commends President Muhammadu Buhari on the recent published appointments as a laudable effort that had waited too long to be welcomed.
“The youth organisation is appealing to Nigerians to be patient with the Federal Government on the shortcomings and should all focus on the goals.
“We are also appealing to Nigerians to treat the deceased appointees’ inclusion as a posthumous recognition and appreciation by the government for the services rendered by the great Nigerians.
“This will make the survivors of the deceased families proud of the noticed sacrificial efforts of the compatriots,” the group said.
