2023: I Won’t Work For Any Presidential Candidate – Ngige

Dr. Chris Ngige, the minister of labor and employment, has declared he will not attempt to promote any of the presidential contenders in the election in February.

The four front-runners for president are Ngige’s friends, and he will neither campaign for or against any of them, the All Progressives Congress (APC) member declared.

This was said by the Minister on Wednesday when addressing journalists at his rural residence in Alor.

Instead, he advised Nigerians to consider the platforms of the candidates, decide which of them was superior to the other, and cast their votes wisely.

When further pressed on which of the candidates he thought would win the election, Ngige said he would prefer not to make a prediction, adamant that Nigerians should be free to select the individual they believe should be their president.

In describing his personal connections to each of the leading candidates for president, Ngige stated: “Malam Kwankwaso is my friend; I also know him as deputy speaker when he was filling in for Agunwa Anekwe, one of the strong guys in our party.

“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Vice President (former) the Federal Republic of Nigeria was the man who was in the helm of affairs when I was ‘kidnapped’- when I was shoved out of office.

“He was standing in for Mr President (Obasanjo), who was in Maputo, and he ordered the Inspector General of Police then, to reinstate me to office.

“Peter Obi, my brother, my successor and my everything, I know him too and he is a friend. So, how do I campaign against any of them?
