National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has urged the Ministers of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and that of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, to inaugurate all boards under their ministries.

In a letter dated July 11, 2018 and addressed to the ministers, the APC chairman warned that they could face party sanctions if they don’t comply with the directive within one week.

Oshiomhole blasted 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.

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 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 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.”
