Activist Advises FG To Appoint Board Members That Will Serve Govt Agencies Better


*Reminds Buhari of  expiration of many board chairmen, members


An activist of human rights and social justice, Comrade Adeyinka Joshua Owolabi has reminded the  government of President Muhammadu Buhari to purge and purify the system before he hands 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 elapse 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, Ministry of Educational, TetFund and Nigeria Port Authority (NPA) as ministries and agencies the tenure of their chairmen and board members are 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 under performed. 

“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 offices to source 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.
