Must read

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige has debunked rumor making round on his alleged ambition to run for the 2021 Anambra State governorship election.

The minister made the statement in his country home in Alor, in Idemili Local Government Area, of the state on Sunday.

He stated that although he had the right to contest, he was too busy with his national assignment as a minister to start eyeing “a provincial job.”

Ngige said, “Whether you’re a member of APC or PDP, APGA, Accord, APA, PPP, once you are vulnerable, you get. We started with my town. We will fan out to my local government, then to my entire senatorial district. We also intend to reach out to the church. If we don’t do it and COVID-19 kills all of us, what then will my foundation do?

“Yes, there have been speculations that I am eyeing the governorship of Anambra State. They have written about it in a lot of media. I am a politician. They have the right to speculate on my next move. My next move is very vast.

“Elections will come in 2023, I have a right to vie for any position. I can vie for Senate. I can vie for President if I so wish. Election will be coming in Anambra State, latest November 2021 to elect a successor to Obiano. I am not disqualified”.
