The Presidency has denied media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari would conclude the appointments of members of the boards and agencies of federal government in January, 2017.

“We wish to rebut the above tabloid headline which has been trending in the last 48 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,” Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said on his Facebook page on Thursday.
