President Muhammadu Buhari has made the largest set of appointments of Chairmen and Members of Boards of Federal Agencies and Parastatals since assuming office.

The president on Friday announced  the appointment of 209 board chairmen and 1,258 board members according to a statement from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

These appointments also boast a record number of Ogun State Indigenes than any other Nigerian government in recent history has managed. Over 40 of the new appointees reportedly recommended by Governor Ibikunle Amosun are from Ogun State.

Mr. President considered the approval for the constitution of the Boards as well as the appointments, very necessary, so as to provide a proper Governance and oversight structure for Government Agencies and Parastatals. The constitution of the boards with the appointments, is a demonstration of this Government’s efforts aimed at building strong institutions of Governance, and by extension, improving the quality of Policy formulation and supervision.
