Former Minister of Socials Welfare Gender and Children’s Affairs, Moijue Kaikai has told Awoko that he accepted the president’s decision to fire him because it was right thing for him to do.
In a telephone interview with him on Monday, the former minister averred that the president is responsible to hire and fire any minister and the decision he took for what transpired between him and his deputy is something he accepts and he will forever remain grateful to him for the appointment.
“I want to stress the point that the president is right and, definitely I want to thank him for appointing me in the first place and I will forever be grateful to him and will continue to support him and the party, because I am APC and will continue to be APC.”
When asked if he has any plans to further the matter between him and the deputy minister, Moijue said that is not the important thing now as he believes the whole truth will be revealed.
“I was destined to suffer as I have known it for sometime now; I have therefore accepted it in good faith.”
The former minister said his legacy will forever remain at the Ministry of Social Welfare, because he worked assiduously to make the ministry viable and enviable. He averred that those who know him believe that he is hard working and there is no way he will not continue to support the party.
It could be recalled that last week a recording between the two ministers and his deputy had a heated conversation at their Social Welfare office, New England Ville where many disparaging statements were uttered.
The recording was damaging and went out of hand between the two ministers that cause anger and embarrassment to the populace. This caused the president to act swiftly on Monday morning by relieving both of them from office and left the Permanent Secretary to run the affairs of ministry.
