Kinsmen and political allies of Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, have asked the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to give the former Anambra State Governor its presidential ticket in respect of the 2023 presidency.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the paramount ruler of Alor, Igwe Collins Chukwumesili and the President-General of Alor Peoples Convention (APC), Uzoma Igbonwa, said Ngige, a pressidential aspirant, is very competent for the Aso Rock top job.
Another prominent kinsman, Bona Oraekwe, who echoed Igwe Chukwumesili and Igbonwa’s thoughts, stated: “Ngige is better than the best. He has the capacity, courage and experience. We know his antecedents. He saved Anambra State from godfatherism, managed Anambra’s economy with zero allocations and built solid infrastructures”.
Other kinsmen of Ngige, Celestine Obiora (Ekwueme), Alex Nwolisa (Ikolonze), Abuchi Igweama (Ozowulu) and Ben Ukpaka (Nwajiugo) urged all political parties, especially the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to zone the presidency to the southeast region.
