Show you believe in one Nigeria by voting APC – Ngige tells Ndigbo

Labour Minister, Senator Chris Ngige

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has urged the South-East geopolitical zone to demonstrate their belief in one Nigeria by joining and voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ngige, a former governor of Anambra State, made this known in an interview with Vanguard.

He said that while the zone deserves to produce the president of Nigeria, Igbo people must support APC, which he described as the “train that is moving on smoothly”, to actualise the dream.

The minister urged the people of Anambra to begin this support during the state’s governorship election coming up in 2021.

Ngige said, “I keep on telling the Igbo that they have to join the train that is moving on smoothly. For them to make impressionable mark they should be ready to be counted; they must start with Anambra, because it is the only state to conduct election in the South-East before the next general election.

“Igbo must believe in one Nigeria and one sure way of doing that is by voting massively for the APC in 2021 in the Anambra election, knowing full well that the ruling party in the state, APGA has performed abysmally poor and therefore no grounds to ask the people to give them another mandate.

“The people gave them mandate in 2012 for Peter Obi to do a 2nd term and after that, he brought a successor, Obiano.

“But the people of the state are now looking at those periods and comparing it with 33 months I held sway as governor.

“These people’s 12 years plus have not even got to the level of development I had in two years and nine months under my leadership as governor of Anambra State.”

Ngige disclosed that although he has been approached to contest the governorship election, he continues to concentrate on his work as a minister.
