PDP chieftain Tony Anenih has dismissed critics of his recent appointment as the Chairman, Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and urged Nigerians to ignore “mischievous publications” in the media about the appointment.Anenih, in a statement yesterday by his aide, Peter Abulu, said that the same attitude should be shown towards similar media publications in respect of efforts by the leadership of the PDP to fill the vacant position of Chairman of its Boards of Trustees.
“The attention of Chief Tony Anenih has been drawn to several newspaper publications in the last few days about his recent appointment as Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and the effort by the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fill the vacant position of its Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman.
“While Chief Anenih appreciates the concerns of some Nigerians about some mischievous publications on these issues, he believes silence is golden in times like this, and has requested concerned Nigerians not to join issues with the opposition elements in their mischievous enterprise.
“The appointment of Chief Anenih as Chairman of NPA Board was the absolute discretion of Mr. President and the filling of the vacant position of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the PDP is the absolute discretion of the party leadership and BoT members. It should not be a matter for media propaganda.”
