50 federal agencies run by acting CEOs
Wed, 27 Jun 2018

About 50 federal agencies are being run by acting chief executive officers years after their substantive heads either retired or were sacked, thereby slowing the statutory activities of most of them, Daily Trust investigations have shown.
This is coming eight months after President Muhammadu Buhari announced that he will appoint more ministers into his cabinet and also make board appointments.
On October 31 last year, Buhari had during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) disclosed his intention to expand the ministerial appointments from 36 to an undisclosed number. He said he would also make more boards appointments.

At least 12 of these agencies without substantive heads are under the education ministry, 11 in agriculture, three in works, power and housing, two in information and culture, while the remaining are under the Presidency and Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF).
Most of these agencies are critical actors in the finance sectors, anti-corruption, governance, infrastructural development, ease of doing business, agriculture, science, and technology, among others.
Aside from the absence of the CEOs, most of the boards of these agencies have not been reconstituted, a development which insiders say has serious implication for operational efficiency.
These boards are responsible for setting out broad economic, financial, operational administrative guidelines and targets for their various agencies.
They are also concerned with policy issues, monitoring of institutional projects, programmes and ensuring that the parastatals’ mandates are realized.
Despite Buhari’s anti-graft crusade, the two federal anti-corruption agencies – Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), have been led by acting chief executives for more than two years.
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), which is the pioneer federal anti-corruption agency saddled with the responsibility of checking corrupt practices in the Nigerian public service has been without a substantive head.
In the finance sector, the National Pension Commission (PenCom), and Fiscal Responsibility Commission (FRC) are also run by acting heads after their chief executives were removed.

PenCom is the federal agency saddled with the task of regulating, supervising, and ensuring the effective administration of pension matters in Nigeria.
The FRC is an agency set up by law to provide for prudent management of the nation’s resources, ensure the long-term macroeconomic stability of the national economy, secure greater accountability and transparency in fiscal operations within the medium-term fiscal policy framework.
A fortnight ago, Buhari approved the renewal of the tenure of six CEOs of federal agencies, the appointment of two new others, and one Senior Special Assistant. The six appointments that were renewed for the second and final tenure include Dr Boboye Olayemi Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal/CEO, Federal Road Safety Corps; Dr Jafaru Alunua Momoh, Chief Medical Director of National Hospital Abuja; Dr Nwadinigwe Uwatoronye, Medical Director, National Orthopedic Hospital, Enugu State; Prof. Eli Jidere Bala, Director General of Energy Commission of Nigeria; Dr Mohammed Jibrin, Director General of the National Board for Technology Incubation (NBTI); and Prof. Mohammed Haruna, Executive Chairman of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI).
