I wish to draw the attention of His Excellency President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan that the appointment of board membership of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency was characterised by lopsidedness and in total disregard to the principle of federal character. You may kindly note that out of the ten membership of the board of such a nucleus parastatal in the Ministry of Aviation none of the members is from the Northern part of Nigeria.
The members are: Chief Yomi Akintola (chairman), Capt. Toju Ogisi, Chief Tunde Taiwo, Engr Jim Ogbolu, Mr. Peter Momodu, Mrs Omikunle, Mr Ralph Ogar, Mrs Aletche Bimbo, C.C Nwuba and Barrister Tony Odita.
In line with your Oath of Office “…that in all circumstances, I will do right to all manner of people, according to law, without fear or favour, affection or ill-will…” and taking into account that we are in a democratic dispensation, I hereby appeal to Mr President to kindly address this skewed anomaly in the interest of peace, harmony, fairness and national interest before the board is inaugurated.
Fufore Street, Kubwa, FCT.
