Gbajabiamila-Led Committee to Select New Appointees for Government Boards.

By Mohammed Bello Doka. 
President Bola Tinubu has taken proactive steps in constituting a special committee tasked with the responsibility of selecting and nominating new appointees to replace the dissolved federal government boards. The committee, led by Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, has been given the crucial task of identifying suitable candidates for the affected board positions.

A reliable source within the Presidency revealed that Tinubu has emphasized the need for the committee to thoroughly understand the mandates of each agency in terms of federal character representation or specific educational and technical expertise requirements. This requirement has been put in place to ensure that the new appointees are well-suited for their respective roles.

Joining Chief of Staff Gbajabiamila on the special committee are esteemed individuals such as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. George Akume, Special Adviser to the President on Political and Intergovernmental Affairs, Mallam Yau Darazo, as well as legal and private sector experts.

The committee's primary objective is to conduct a comprehensive study of the laws governing each affected Ministry, Department, and Agency to gain a thorough understanding of the qualifications and requirements expected from individuals who will lead them.

President Tinubu has explicitly directed the committee to adhere to the principles of federal character representation and ensure that suitable candidates possess the necessary educational and technical expertise. This directive underscores Tinubu's commitment to appointing competent leaders who can effectively drive the development agenda of the government agencies.

It is important to note that President Tinubu had previously announced the dissolution of the existing federal government boards on June 19, 2023, with the exception of selected agencies. This decision was communicated through a statement by Willie Bassey, Director of Information in the Secretary to the Government of the Federation's office.

The newly constituted committee under the leadership of Chief of Staff Femi Gbajabiamila demonstrates President Tinubu's commitment to carefully selecting qualified individuals who will steer the affected agencies towards achieving their mandates effectively.

By instituting this special committee to oversee the replacement of appointees to the dissolved federal government boards, Tinubu aims to ensure transparency, fairness, and adherence to the principles of federal character representation and specified educational and technical expertise. This process will ultimately contribute to the overall success and efficiency of the government agencies involved.
