FG advised to appoint patriotic, capable Nigerians into boards of agencies


An activist and Human rights and social justice crusader, Comrade Adeyinka Joshua Owolabi has reminded the outgoing government of President Muhammadu Buhari to purge and purify the system before handing over power to the incoming government.

Owolabi said one of the ways to do that by the Buhari-led government is to bring on board good chairmen and members as board members of many government agencies and parastatals.

According to him some of the board Chairmen and members’ tenures are about to lapse and unfortunately, some of them didn’t do well in adding value to their respective places of primary assignments.

He gave examples of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission, (NCPC), Muslim Pilgrims commission, Ministry of Information and Culture, and Nigeria Port Authority (NPA) as ministries and agencies which the tenure of their Chairmen and board members is about to elapse.

For this reason, Mr. Owolabi said he is of the view that the government should not think of elongating their tenure because some of them have poor performance.

“There are other Nigerians who are better and well equipped in terms of knowledge and ideas that the government should bring on board to support the ministries, agencies, and commissions to work better for the overall interest of Nigerians.

“For some of them, their tenure Will expire soon, in fact, the first week of February is the date set for others to leave their office to face other means of survival.

“May I advise that a good research and strategic team should be recruited to embark on a hunt of good Nigerians that Will support ministers, executives, and government senior officials to deliver good services to Nigeria,” Owolabi said
