The immediate past Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has stated that the administration of former president Mohammed Buhari (retd.), did not fail Nigerians.
He stated this during a recent interaction with journalists in Alor, Anambra State, where he was distributing relief items to locals.
According to The PUNCH, the former minister while refuting claims of failure, cited notable projects such as the Second Niger Bridge, school feeding programs, and upgrades to the Enugu Airport as evidence of the government’s accomplishments.
He said, “It is not true that the Buhari administration was a failure. I was part of the government and the administration completed a lot of projects including the Second Niger Bridge, school feeding programme and numerous railways across the country.
“There is APC one and two in Anambra State. I won’t deny that fact. I am the father of APC here, I am the face of APC in Anambra State and I know for certain that we have newcomers who have been coming since the year 2021 and because the party is like a church, you don’t stop people from entering a church to seek salvation, so also you can’t stop people from entering a party to support government in power.
“We allow everybody but there is a segregation already because the new members don’t want to reckon with the old members who have laboured for the party from the time we were SDP to ACD, AC to ACN and then finally liberated as APC when we collapsed with NNPP and CPC. These are facts, and I don’t like denying things are facts.”
