Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari's aide on social media, has reacted to the media reports claiming the president appointed a dead person to the board of the Federal Character Commission (FCC).
A report had stated that President Buhari appointed a dead person into the FCC board.
According to the newspaper, the dead man appointed to the board is Chief Tobias Chukwuemeka Okwuru, the member-nominee for Ebonyi state. The man reportedly died on February 27, 2020.
Legit.ng gathered that the dead man is listed as number 12 in the president’s letter to the Senate president, Ahmed Lawan.
Reacting to the report, Onochie insisted President Buhari did not appoint a dead man to serve in the FCC board.
She explained that Okwuru was alive when President Buhari appointed him to serve in the board.
Her words: "Hon Tobias Chukwuemeka Okwuru was very much alive when President Muhammadu Buhari appointed him as the Ebonyi State Member in the Federal Character Commission.
"He even came to update his CV, in readiness for the appointment after the Senate screening.
"When he sadly passed away while waiting for the screening by the Senate, that information was not communicated to the federal government.
"His remains are not yet buried. May his soul rest in peace."
