Loretta Onochie, aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, on Wednesday reacted to reports that President Buhari appointed a dead person into the board of one of the federal government agencies.

In a tweet on her official twitter handle, Onochie said that Buhari was not aware that Okwuru was dead.


Recall reported that Chief Tobias Chukwuemeka Okwuru is one of the member-nominees (Ebonyi State) in Buhari’s letter to the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.

The President in the letter to the senate on Tuesday, requested for Okwuru’s confirmation as a board member of the Federal Character Commission (FCC).




But it was reported that the appointee died on February 27, 2020.

Reacting to the development, Onochie said Okwuru was alive when Buhari appointed him but died before the Senate screening.


She said, “Hon Tobias Okwuru was very much alive when President @MBuhari appointed him as the Ebonyi State Member in d Federal Character Commission

“He came to update his CV, in readiness for the appointment after the Senate screening.


“When he sadly passed away while waiting for the screening by the Senate, that information was not communicated to the federalg overnment.

“His remains are not yet buried. May his soul rest in peace.”
