Mac machine admin accounts and their ability to remove other admins

I would like to keep one admin account on a Mac from stripping admin privileges from other admin accounts.

After waiting three months for my hyper-controlling and technically-challenged boss to set up my new Mac, I took matters into my own hands and did it myself. Now he wants the admin of the computer. I told him more than one account can have admin but I know what he is really saying is he wants to have total control. Considering how long I have been waiting for him to do updates on my old machine, the likelihood that updates would be done, even on a yearly basis, is poor.
I have set up another admin account for him but, by all appearances, any admin can come in and strip admin rights from the other admin accounts. Is there a way I can stop this?
