All Peoples Congress chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has sent a warning signal to the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige and that of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, saying the duo may face sanctions if they refuse to constitute boards in their ministries.
In his acceptance speech after he became the APC chairman, Oshiomhole said that he would subject every member of the party to the party’s supremacy.
In a letter dated July 11 and addressed to the ministers, the APC chairman berated them for failing to reconstitute the boards which according to him contravene the position of the National Executive Council and the presidential directive to all ministers, describing it as a great disrespect to the party and gave them one week in which to do so.
The letter read thus: “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 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 forgoing, 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 concluded.
