“Me, fire is under my elbow because before I employ you as a minister I would sit you down and see if you are going to follow my vision and work with me.

“And when you fails to oblige with my vision, I will give you some time but if I see that you are unable to meet the requirements, you will go home. Yes, I will just fire you,” he added.

According to him a president who is elected to give service to the people must have a common ideology between himself and his appointees.

He said with his believe in the ‘justice for all’ principles, he would never condone and entertain any wrongdoing of his potential appointees let alone his relatives when elected as President.
