Waba’s Monday protest directive unlawful, Ngige tells workers

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has assured of the victory of his boss, President Muhammadu Buhari who is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forth coming general election.

Ngige who said he once predicted the victory of Buhari in 2015 says he’s doing that again as a prophet.

The former Anambra State governor spoke on Tuesday at the Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Office in Awka, the state capital while giving 4,000 bags of rice, 4,000 cartons of tomatoes among other items to the APC members.

He urged people of the southeast to support Buhari for a second term adding that the region would be better for it.

He said, “I’m a prophet the Igbo should listen to. I said it in 2015 and I am saying it again to Ndigbo that Buhari will win the 2019 presidential election convincingly.

“It will be good and in the interest of the Igbo if we give Buhari another four years. By then, it will be ‘a pass and pass out’ for him instead of giving these sugar-coated PDP deceivers the chance to come and destroy and take this country to the precipice again.

“Those who abandoned the party at the last minute, thinking the party would not win any election would, live to regret it.

“We should give President Muhammadu Buhari maximum support in the 2019 general elections, that is the only and shortest way to get the Presidency for the Igbo.”

He also noted that the restructuring message being preached by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was a deceit aimed at distracting the people of the region.

He added, “The restructuring my good friend, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, of the Peoples Democratic Party is promising is a deceit. Again, Atiku said he would do one tenure and go. This is another deceit. No Nigerian would do that.

“Restructuring by the PDP is a proper deceit because the issue of restructuring is a constitutional matter. Nobody can do it unilaterally without recourse to the National Assembly. Restructuring is a broad area.”
