Constitution of boards of agencies would be gradual, says Presidency

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos

The Presidency has refuted media reports suggesting that all outstanding boards of agencies would be constituted in January.

Rather, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu in a statement on Thursday said the composition of the affected boards would be gradual as they would be done sector by sector.

Shehu in the statement wrote, “We wish to rebut the above tabloid headline which has been trending in the last 48 hours.

“That President Buhari will make full board appointments in January 2017 as published did not come from us. In the interaction between myself and some State House correspondents in which I tried to clear a few issues that they raised, here is what I said:

“You know that the reconstitution began methodically, from sector to sector. You should expect that to resume at the beginning of the New Year. The President has given directions on what to do.’’
