Fani-Kayode on his Twitter handle said that 'anybody that more comfortable working with the dead than he is with the living is a practicing necromancer'.

However, more findings have shown that there are still three more dead persons that also made the list.

Full list of constituted board as released by the media aides of President Muhammadu Buhari. He died in December 2016 and President Buhari had sent a letter of condolence to the family.

The president approved the constitution of the Governing Boards of Agencies and Parastatals, under some Ministries, as well as the appointment of eminently qualified Nigerians to fill the Board positions.

Others are Garba Attahiru, a former chairman of Kaduna South Local Government who passed on past year but was appointed on the board of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenegoa, and Umar Dange, a former secretary of APC elders committee in Sokoto, who was appointed to the board of FMC Ibute Meta.

Chief Ugbaja, a former Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of the Nigerian Police Force died on November 29, 2017.

But reacting to the issue, spokesman of the President, Mr Garba Shehu, said the error in the list was not enough to castigate the President for.

According to Boss Mustapha, all the appointments take immediate effect.

At least seven appointees announced Friday by the presidency on a list that has over a thousand board members have been confirmed to have died long before their appointments. The President asked all state chapters of the APC to forward 50 names for appointments to the SGF through the national headquarters of the party.

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.

"However, complaint arose from some Governors who felt they were not carried along in the process". "The president's trips for medical attention slowed down completion of the process", he said, until when Mr Buhari chose to revisit the matter recently.
