According to Mr. Boss Mustapha, secretary to the Government of the Federation, more appointments will still be made. The statement was accompanied by a list of the appointed persons. "To answer this, the president constituted a committee under the vice president to review and reflect the interest of the governors".

A list of over 1,460 people was released Friday evening but careful scrutiny by the media revealed duplications and names of deceased persons and others who were not in the ruling party.

"The president's trips for medical attention slowed down completion of the process", he said.

Fani-Kayode had recently alleged that President Buhari was suffering from dementia, but feels that the health issue may have worsened, after names of three dead men were among the list of the new appointments released by the Federal Government on Friday. Among them was Senator Francis Okpozo.
