Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to "withdraw without further delay the list of appointments to the boards of agencies and parastatals in order to remove a clear and recognizable danger to the integrity of these bodies, and allow the civil service systems to carry out the appointments, in strict conformity with established rules and Nigeria's worldwide anticorruption obligations and commitments".

The three dead persons were late Senator Francis Okpozo, who died in December 2016.

The SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha had on Friday issued a statement announcing that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the appointment of chairmen and board members for 209 federal government agencies and parastatals.

The founder of Fidei Polytechnic, Gboko, the first private polytechnic in Northern Nigeria was in April 2017. Chief Ugbaja, a former DIG of the Nigerian Police, died on November 29, 2017.

However, during an appearance on Channels Television's special End of the year Programme on Sunday, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, revealed that the President will reveal the fate of those behind the fuel crisis during his address.

He said the list which was released by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) was prepared over two years ago and nobody could stop some of those included on the list from dying between then and now.

The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has urged Nigerians to keep alive their hope in the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration to restore the economy and bring it to a remarkable height.

He said the president requested for the submission of 50 names each by the state chapters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in 2015, which were later compiled by the national secretariat of the party.

"The report was disputed by state governors who said they were not carried along or the list was not representative enough".

"The list has a history which explains the controversy around it".
