- The minister of labour, Chris Ngige, has been asked to focus his energy on how to make Nigeria great, saying the latter is too old to be engaging in mischief
- The advice was given by the former governor of Anambra state and vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 general elections
- Recall that Ngige said he was ashamed of the quality of roads constructed by Obi and Willy Obiano, his successor
- Obi says the people of Anambra know the difference between his government and that of Ngige
Vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, Peter Obi, has advised the minister of labour, Chris Ngige, to focus his energy on how to make Nigeria great, saying the latter is too old to be engaging in mischief.
The advice followed the statement credited to Ngige, in which the latter said he was ashamed of the quality of roads constructed by Obi and Willy Obiano, his successor.
Obi, who reacted through his media aide, Valentine Obienyem, said the people of the state know the difference between his government and that of Ngige.
Obienyem said: “Where will the comparison start? Is it health, where Ngige did nothing? Is it education, where Ngige did nothing? Is it commerce and industry, where Ngige did nothing?
"Is it the provision of infrastructure, where all he did was to cause the burning down of the state? Is it our relationship with donor agencies? Where? What is most condemnable in Ngige’s attacks are the lies he tells just to bring Obi down.
"How could he mention roads such as Abatete-Nteje-Aguleri-Otuocha and Igboukwu-Ezenifite-Umunze, Iseeke roads and deliberately forgot that Obi did greater portions of those roads?”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the minister of labour and productivity, Chris Ngige, has warned against the growing unemployment in Nigeria.
While receiving an award from the college of medicine, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, at the weekend, Ngige said Nigeria might explode sooner if unemployment in the country is not tackled urgently.
The minister said if the level of unemployment in the country was not tackled with adequate commitment, Nigeria would turn out like Venezuela.
