A popular priest and a good governance advocate from Akwa Ibom State, Richard Peters has weighed into the controversy of President Muhammadu Buhari appointing 8 dead people to federal boards in the country.
Reverend Peters called on the National Assembly to suspend the appointees citing the many issues that have come from the announcement.
He alleged that the brain behind the debacle isIta Enang, the president’s aide on the National Assembly. He described Senator Ita Enang as a “confused aide” .
”I reject the appointments made yesterday by Ita Enang, if the Appointments were made by the President his name should have been written and addressed as Muhammadu Buhari GCFR not ‘Muhammadu Buhari GCON’ as released by a confused SSA to the President on National Assembly matters Ita Enang, who doesn’t even know his job, all he does is to go to the Radio Station and call a sitting governor a ‘disaster’,” Peters wrote on his facebook page on Sunday, December 31, 2017.
“I once wrote an open letter to the president to call him to order. ”
“To me, I feel that the appointments didn’t follow due process, that is why the federal government encourages ghost chairmanship, you see dead people’s name as chairmen of boards.
“They dumbed the youths, hoping to use them as thugs by 2019.”
“How many were appointed? APC we are wiser than you.”
“In Akwa Ibom state, about 27 people have been appointed, I appreciate whoever appointed them and congratulate the appointees but all these people are retired politicians, of which the president feels that they can be used to secure Akwa Ibom state for APC.”
“Let Abuja know that in Akwa Ibom state APC is not known.”
“I’ll defend the people’s party with my blood. Even though am not a party man”
“Ita Enang, Nsima Ekere, J.J. Udoedehe and others should all go and rest, their market doesn’t record sales again.
“I call on the National Assembly to Suspend the appointments made yesterday until due process is followed.
