A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has taken out on the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari for appointing dead people as board members.
Fani-Kayode said the President’s dementia has gone viral, citing his previous appointment of Nigerian Ambassador to the U.S.A.
He said “First, you forgot ur own age. Then u appoint an 81 year old who drawls, who can barely walk and who wears clothes from the 1940’s as our Ambassador to the U.S.A. And now u appoint a dead man, Sen. Francis Okposo, as Chairman of the Press Council. Ur dementia has gone viral.
“Buhari just appointed Donald Ugbaja as a member of the Consumer Protection Council. He also appointed Chris Utov as a member of the Nigeria Institute of Social and Economic Research. Sadly, like Senator Okposu who was appointed Chairman of the Press Council, they are both dead.”
In the case of Senator Okposu, Buhari appointed him despite condoling with his family after the announcement of his death last year.
