National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has read the Riot Act to the Ministers of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and that of Aviation, Sen.Hadi Sirika, on the need to inaugurate all boards under their Ministries within one week or face sanctions from the party.
In a letter dated July 11, 2018 and addressed to the ministers, the APC chairman berated the ministers for failing to reconstitute the Boards, which according to him contravenes the position of the National Executive Council and the Presidential directives to all Ministers, describing it as a great disrespect to the party.
The letter reads: “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 contravenes the position 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 a 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 willfully disregard lawful instructions from either the government or the party.
“In the light of the forging, 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,” it stated.
