President Muhammadu Buhari has dissolved the Boards of Federal Parastatals, Agencies and Institutions in the country.

The dissolution was announced on Thursday, July 16, 2015 by Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina via a statement.

The statement reads in part:

“Until the boards are reconstituted, chief executive officers of the affected parastatals, agencies and institutions are to refer all matters requiring the attention of their boards to the President, through the Permanent Secretaries of their supervising ministries.”

“While the dissolution does not affect Federal Executive Bodies listed in the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it covers administrative or technical committees and other similar organs established by the now dissolved boards.”

Buhari also terminated the appointment of the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Patrick Ziakede Akpobolokemi on July 16.
