In a recent statement, Nigeria’s Minister for Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, called on Igbo people to refrain from engaging in what he termed “bad politics.” He asserted that despite opposition from Igbo individuals, President Muhammadu Buhari has fulfilled all his campaign promises to the southeast region.
Ngige specifically mentioned the opening of the Second Niger Bridge and the completion of various projects under Buhari’s administration as evidence of the government’s commitment. He urged southeasterners to develop a better understanding of political strategies, emphasizing the need to diversify party affiliations instead of relying solely on one party during elections.
According to Sahara Reporters and Daily Trust, Senator Ngige highlighted the significance of these projects in vindicating those who chose to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) party.
He encouraged the Igbo community to avoid practicing exclusionary politics and relying on a single political entity for their representation. Ngige emphasized the importance of diversifying political allegiances and engaging in a more strategic approach to politics in order to effectively advocate for the interests of the Igbo people.
