FG establishes panel to restructure parastatal boards

1 Min Read

Following the dissolution of boards of agencies by the President Bola Tinubu in June 2023, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, has set up an ad hoc committee to review the resumes of individuals who will fill board appointments, Sunday PUNCH reports.


The ad hoc committee is currently being co-chaired by a former governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, and a former governor of Jigawa State, Abubakar Badaru.


Our correspondent gathered that the two ex-governors were working hand in hand to achieve a timely submission of names so as to ensure an early resumption of new board members in line with the “renewed hope” agenda.


A text obtained from the office of the SGF indicated that Akume met with Bagudu and Badaru in his office on Friday in Abuja, though it is not yet clear when the final list of names will be submitted.



“An ad hoc committee was set up by the SGF and Atiku Bagudu and Abubakar Badaru are co-chairs. The cabinet is finally in place. So, the only delay now is the constitution of boards of agencies.”
