The Senior Special Assistant to President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has dismissed reports that the president planned to fully constitute boards of agencies and parastatals in January.
The presidential spokesman said in a statement that the such exercise was being done methodically, and “the president has given direction on what to do”.

RE: “BUHARI TO MAKE FULL BOARD APPOINTMENTS JANUARY”
We wish to rebut the above tabloid headline which has been trending in the last forty-eight 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.”
Kindly help us to correct the misrepresentation.
