Nominee Rejects Buhari's Offer as NERC Chairman

 President Muhammadu Buhari has got a third rejection from someone he nominated to head the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) 



– Two other Nigerians had recently rejected the president’s offer that they should serve as the country’s diplomats 

– The reason given by Pauline Tallen, one of the former nominees, was the same argument reportedly given by the nominee for NERC. 

It is the third major blow for President Muhammadu Buhari within one weekas another Nigerian has rejected an offer from his government. This time, Professor Akintunde Akinwande has reportedly rejected an offer by the president to serve in the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) as chairman.

This was made obvious by Akinwande’s absence at the Senate session on Tuesday, October 25 when he and his other nominees were to be screened. 

The Nation quoted a source as saying Akinwande turned down the offer based on the alleged fact that he was not consulted before the nomination was made. 

Two other Nigerians, including Pauline Tallen from Plateau state had earlier rejected Buhari’s offer to be Nigeria’s diplomats based on the excuse that there were no adequate consultations.

In the case of Professor Akinwande, he was said to be the only one whose profile and credentials were missing among the seven nominees for the board of NERC. 

While Akinwande was to be the chairman, the other nominees for the board appointment included  Sanusi Garuba (vice chairman), Nathan R Shatti (commissioner), Dr. Moses Arigu (commissioner), Dafe C Akpeneye (commissioner), Prof Frank Okafor(commissioner) and Musiliu O Oseni(commissioner). 

While claiming that Akinwande was doing a project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the reported source added: “We also learnt that enough consultation was not made before the man was nominated. We were informed that the nominee may have turned down his nomination.” 

Following the absence of Akinwande, the chairman of the committee mandated to do the screening informed that the exercise would not continue adding that the board was very important for the boosting of power sector in the country. 

He said: “Regrettably, when members of the committee assembled to screen the nominees made by President Muhammadu Buhari, we were told that the chairman designate was unavoidably absent.


“The Presidential liaison who brought the nominees informed us that the chairman was unavoidably absent.” He noted that the board members were nominated three months ago and wondered why the presidency did not have the knowledge that any of the members would reject the offer. 

“We cannot screen them until we have a formal communication from the presidency,” he said.

  21. Yeah. We need a better leader not all these crooks and looters. I'm about two or three generations ahead of some of y'all. When I look back to some pictures from the 70 to 80 you can't tell the difference between the roads and buildings in USA and Nigeria. Yes! I was in U.S. Yes Ambrose Alli was bailed out of jail for 1million, Shehu Shagari almost went to jail!
    Yes! We have good roads, clean water, better hospitals, jobs, electricity, retiree were getting paid on time, I graduated right from high school to a judiciary job! We have dreams, good lifestyle, you can drive to anywhere at night without getting harassed, kidnapped, or rob by the police or armed robbers, bad news seldomly happen to people.
    But, the last 30 years has been nothing but disappointments and shame. Omg! From Babagidan, Obasanjo to Jonathan. Jonathan and his cabinets have not don't shit but to loots! they've looted the treasury to zeros, they're looting billions in foreign currencies, they've looted all the Dollars, Pounds, and Euros, they are the worst that we've ever had as leaders.
    Yes. Changes start now! Corruption and looting is killing our country and we must demand changes for a better Nigeria. Arrests, prosecutes, and jail is the only answer.
    Yes. I'm about two or three generations ahead of some of yall, y'all been killing me with some dumb comments. We must fight for our grandchildren, fight for their future! Denied them criminals from ruining our children's future to drain.
    Honestly. I don't have nothing to lose, I'm rich! Yes! I said it, both home and abroad. My kids are all grown, and I'm so proud of them, I don't have an advanced education, but my kids are Medical doctors and Pharmacists. Yes. I'm proud of what I have been able to achieved.
    I'm an OG! Smart OG! Y'all need to stand up for a better Nigeria. Wake up people.
    Changes start now!
