The Association of New Igbo Democrats has reacted to the conduct of Dr. Chris Ngige, the minister of labour and employment, following his appearance before an ad hoc committee of the House of Representatives.

The minister who was supposed to be answering questions on the suspension of the management of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) stated that members of the committee except for James Faleke, were his younger brothers.

Ngige had described Faleke who is a known political ally of Bola Tinubu, as a small boy, adding that he is of the same age as the former governor and the reps’ “mentor in Lagos.”

The group in a statement on Sunday, July 26, described Ngige’s action before the House of Reps ad hoc committee as “regrettable”.

The minister was accused of going on a needless voyage, tracing his leadership which is not enviable and comparing himself with Tinubu.

The Association of New Igbo Democrats went on to note that a comparison between the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader and the minister is that between day and night.

The Igbo body added that the minister's conduct during the hearing “smacks of ingratitude” for Ngige to compare himself with Tinubu.

The group urged Ngige to face the allegations and respond to the questions from the committee and stop the pointless comparison.
