Since the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, late on Friday announced the appointment of 209 board chairpersons and 1,258 board members and it was discovered that about 4 dead persons were on the list, Nigerians haven’t stopped talking about it. We compiled a list of funny reactions by Nigerians on Twitter
Trust Femi Fani-Kayode to be one those to drop his two cents on the matter. He wrote:
Reliable sources at the Presidency said President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked his spokesperson Femi Adesina and replaced him with the late Dele Giwa!
Another great appointment for the dead!
Corpsocracy (the rulership of the living by the dead) is alive and well in Nigeria!

Well, one says it takes one to know one
Only the dead appoint the dead https://t.co/AeAKRwilk9

This one just doesn’t see any hope in Nigeria again after this unforgivable blunder

Well, at least here is one that saw reason with Mr President
What is this uproar about “ Dead Men Working “ ? If the living cannot do the work, why can’t the man appoint the dead? APC?????????????????

This Nigerians says the persons were probably just dying at the time
President Muhammad Buhari did not appoint dead people, he appointed dying people. pic.twitter.com/cxpKJFR6Tl

Here’s one that even gave a suggestion
Even if you want to appoint dead people, can you please appoint credible ones, what happened to late dora akunyili

Well, here is one that concurs with President Buhari
A lot of backlash on President Buhari for appointing 3 dead Nigerians as Board Chairmen Of Parastatals.
President Buhari is the President of both living and dead Nigerians. He can appoint whoever he wants.
Leave him alone

When government exudes a special kind of incompetence, says one funny Twitter user
It can be taken for granted that the Muhammadu Buhari administration is incompetent. But it takes a special kind of incompetence to appoint not 1, not 2 but 3 dead people into boards & agencies.
Never done before in our national history.

On Buhari’s behalf??? This one gives the reason
Dead people won’t steal public funds.
They won’t cut grass at IDP Camps for N250m
They won’t appear in music videos.
You won’t see leaked videos of them doing threesome.
They won’t marry underage girls.
Finally, they won’t pad budget. #TheWorkingDead

Ok, Mr Reno tells us why many Nigerians are unemployed
Recently we learnt from the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics that 10 million Nigerians have lost their jobs under Buhari. We never knew it was because he was giving their jobs to the dead!

Nigerians don’t have chill at all. See ya’all next year. Happy 2018
