The Advanced People’s Democratic Alliance (APDA) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to be more diligent and thorough in the process of  appointing people to political offices
in the future to avoid the embarrassment being witnessed by the administration over the appointment of nine dead people into the board of federal parastatals and agencies.
In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Tosin Adeyanju, the party noted that the list would otherwise have accommodated qualified living Nigerians.
The party decried the explanation of some aides of the President that the Board appointments were compiled since 2015 making it difficult to identify the dead amongst them, citing the inclusion of the name of a recently sacked House of Representatives member that lost his seat in 2017 as a result of supreme Court ruling  as Chairman of one of the  boards.
The party warned the Presidency not to take Nigerians for granted but be dedicated to doing what is right at all times in the discharge of its duties to the nation.
It frowned at a situation whereby sensitive issues that borders on board appointments would be treated in such a shabby manner with officers responsible  apportioning blames and not taking responsibility for this national embarrassment.
The party called on Mr President to sanction the  officials responsible for this national embarrassment to avoid future avoidable mistakes.
