Osh­iom­hole warns Sirika, Ngige over boards’ in­au­gu­ra­tion

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Muideen Olaniyi

The Na­tional Chair­man of the rul­ing All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Adams Osh­iom­hole, has given one week ul­ti­ma­tum to the Min­is­ter of Labour and Em­ploy­ment, Dr Chris Ngige and the Min­is­ter of State Avi­a­tion, Hadi Sirika, to in­au­gu­rate all boards un­der their min­istries or face dis­ci­plinary ac­tion.

Osh­iom­hole, in a let­ter dated July 11, and ad­dressed to the min­is­ters, said the de­ci­sion not to re­con­sti­tute the boards con­tra­vened the po­si­tion of the Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil (NEC) and the pres­i­den­tial di­rec­tives to all min­is­ters.

The let­ter read, “This is to in­form you that the at­ten­tion of the Na­tional Work­ing Com­mit­tee has been drawn to your re­fusal to in­au­gu­rate mem­bers of the re-con­sti­tuted boards un­der the su­per­vi­sion of your min­istry.

“This the po­si­tion con­tra­venes of the NEC, Na­tional Cau­cus and the Pres­i­den­tial di­rec­tives to all min­is­ters to in­au­gu­rate boards of paras­tatals un­der their min­istries. We find this attitude as dis­re­spect to the Pres­i­dent and dis­ser­vice to our great party.“The party will hence­forth no longer tol­er­ate any ap­pointee of gov­ern­ment at all level, who con­tinue to wil­fully dis­re­gard law­ful in­struc­tions from ei­ther the gov­ern­ment or the party.

“In the light of the fore­go­ing, you are hereby di­rected to in­au­gu­rate all the boards un­der your min­istry within one week, fail­ure of which the party will take ap­pro­pri­ate dis­ci­plinary mea­sures against you.”
