Some institutions ignore my orders: Abdullah

Some institutions ignore my orders: Abdullah

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Abdullah on Monday accused some government institutions of ignoring his orders while considering the Presidential Palace the only executive organ of the state.

Addressing the council of ministers, the CEO said all government institutions were responsible to the national unity government leadership under Afghanistaninfo-icon’s constitution.

“We have failed to serve the people the way we should have. The people of Afghanistan have not been provided with the services and facilities they need and being part of the government we should accept this fact,” he added.

Abdullah believed the acknowledgement of failure would not detract from the prestige of his leadership. The unity government had been unable to provide security to the masses and it was their right to express their anger, he admitted.

The CEO expressed concern over the yawning gap between government leaders and the masses, asking for immediate steps to reduce that was not so pronounced during the past 15 years.

Abdullah alleged some ministers, including the finance minister, considered themselves answerable only to the Presidential Palace and ignored orders from CEO office.

“Those attending cabinet meetings are expected to explain progress they have made on national issues and programmes of the national unity government. I don’t have any personal demands from them,” he noted.

Abdullah slammed the finance minister for his absence from the cabinet meeting and said: “Today, the deputy finance minister has come to the meeting. I welcome him but ministers present in Kabul will have to attend future sessions.”

The CEO ruled out any negligence in the investigation of deadly terrorist attacks in the capital. Strict action would be taken against the officials who committed negligence, he warned.
