I ‘ll announce my next political move soon – Ngige


The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, said in a fortnight he will disclose his next political move claiming he was under pressure to contest for Anambra Central Senatorial seat in 2019.

Ngige made this disclosure on Monday at a briefing at Obosi in the Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State saying he would declare his position in two weeks’ time.

“The people who are pressurising me are my constituents; the people of Anambra State and some prominent people from the South-East.

“We are all in agreement that we need to go and better the milieu of the ninth Senate. Many people feel that the present eighth Senate has been engulfed in a battle of supremacy with the executive and they feel that some of us who have tested the executive and legislature should go back. The Senate is not for kindergartens.

“I am considering it, I am consulting and the result of my consultations will be made known in a fortnight,” the minister said.
