Ministers are taking advantage of Buhari’s “fatherly disposition”- Oshiomhole


National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has lamented that ministers are taking advantage of the “fatherly disposition” of President Muhammadu Buhari by failing in their roles in the ministries they head.

Oshiomhole who said this during an interview with State House correspondents also threatened to convince the President to sack such ministers. He also added that he will not condone disrespect for the party if the President does for his office.

His words : “You know, we must return to internal discipline. You cannot purport to be an honourable minister and you act dishonourably. Nobody is greater than the party.

“If the President condones disrespect for his office, I will not condone disrespect for the party.

“And when we expel the minister, we will prevail on the President that he can’t keep in his cabinet people who have neither respect for his own decisions nor have respect for the party without which they would not have been ministers.

“There are no independent candidates in our system. Nobody, I emphasise, no minister is above the party and they have taken undue advantage of the President’s fatherly disposition.”
