The parastatals and agencies in question are the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, National Directorate of Employment, National Productivity Centre, and Michael Imoudu Institute for Labour Studies.

Oshiomhole issued the threat when speaking with journalists at the presidential villa, in Abuja, the Punch reports. He said he would not tolerate ministers who abuse their office and disrespect the president by refusing to carry out his orders.

The threat from the APC chairman was sequel to a letter he wrote to the minister, giving Ngige a week to constitute the board of the parastatals and agencies under his ministry. However, Ngige, in reply, explained why he would not constitute the Board of NSITF within the one week ultimatum given by Oshiuomhole.
