Again, Buhari appoints deceased person into govt agency

President Muhammadu Buhari has again appointed a deceased person into government board.

Mr Buhari made his recent appointment on Tuesday but TODAY POLITICS has observed that one of the appointees is late.

The president approved the appointment of 38 members into the Federal Character Commission (FCC) but the number 12 man on the list, Tobias Chukwuemeka, died on February 28, 2020.

Mr Chukwuemeka, a former federal lawmaker,  represented the Ezza South/Ikwo Federal Constituency at the 7th House of Representatives.

This is not the first time the president has appointed dead persons into government agencies. He did so in 2017 and critics described it as a sign of incompetence on his part.
