Anambra APC Urges Ngige To Contest For President.

NKIRU NWAGBO


As the All Progressives Congress APC considers zoning it's Presidential ticket for Presidency to the South East , members of the party in Anambra state yesterday urged the Minister for Labour and Employment Sen Chris Ngige  to contest for the post of president in 2023.

This was part of resolutions  made at Ngige's Country home Alor when he empowered members of the party executives at ward , local government and state levels .

This resolution came as a result of the motion moved by a former member of the Anambra state House of Assembly for Orumba North local government area Bar Okonkwo Okom which was seconded by a member of the Federal Character Commission Rev Dr Uche Ibeabuchi .

According to Okom , Sen Chris Ngige have served as a governor whose performance has remained green in the memory of Anambra people adding that he was able to show good governance,  prudence and accountability in public service.

"He as a senator that represented Anambra Central Senatorial District delivered effective representation and ensured the the seven local government areas that made up the zone are  connected to the center through constituency projects and attracted government presence .

As a minister for two terms Ngige has shown consistency in the ministry of Labour and Employment which explains why President Muhammadu Buhari had to retrain him as a very important member of the Federal Executive Council.

Similarly Rev Uche Ibeabuchi noted that Ngige remains the leader of APC in Anambra state and the South East and battled against all odds to institute the party in the south east despite hostilities, conspiracy and name calling by members of other political parties.

Endorsing the resolution the former Deputy Speaker of the state Assembly Chief Ozo Ughamadu said that there is no gain saying the fact that Ngige is eminently qualified for the post of presidency adding that there is no better candidate for the position but Ngige himself.

In his reaction Send Chris Ngige noted that he is not unmindful of the demands of his party members adding that he is qualified to contest for Presidency.

He noted that he has been vindicated today as the APC has been in the saddle of leadership for eight years now adding that by the country"s political equation it is the turn of the South East to produce the next President of Nigeria but noted that the zone cannot achieve this alone without the support of other geopolitical zones.

Ngige however appealed to the members of the party to give him up to Easter this year to respond to their demand adding that he has to consult his family members , political associates and other stakeholders before then.
