WHY “PRESIDENT” OSHIOMHOLE IS MAD AT MINISTER NGIGE AND MINISTER NGIGE MAD AT “PRESIDENT” OSHIOMHOLE?
In the APC (Another Platform for Corruption), anything is possible. The Party Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who also acts as the President of Nigeria, while President Muhammadu Buhari is undergoing treatment, has threatened to expel a minister from the party for disobeying him. Does a cabinet member report to the President of Nigeria or the APC Party Chairman or both?
The fight is really about the 2019 Elections. The former board of the NSITF (National Social Insurance Trust Fund) misappropriated 48 billion Naira. Neither the Minister of Labor, Dr. Chris Ngige nor the Party Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole knows how this money was shared. Dr Ngige wants to install checks and balances so that future money is shared equitably, while Comrade Oshiomhole sees a cash cow for 2019 Elections, hence the order to inaugurate the NSITF in one week, or the Minister of Labor will be expelled to the PDP (People Deceiving People).
If 48 billion can disappear, 5 billion of it in one day, how many trillions of Naira can the APC disappear for the 2019 Elections? Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari is playing opossum, but will surely reap the benefits. Now, it is obvious why the two are mad at each other. Accountability can wait till after the election.
Africastallestman is observing the melodrama with glee.
