Why influential Nigerians are against Buhari —Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige , has said some influential Nigerians are not happy with President Muhammadu Buhari because they are not getting free money like in the past .

He said the aggrieved persons were those opposing second term bid of the President against the interest of the masses .

He also said the choice of Peter Obi from the South – East as the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party ’ s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar , would have no influence in the region during the general elections.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja , Ngige alleged that voting did not take place substantially in 2015 in the South – East and South – Soutj as votes were alegedly allotted.

He said , “ Yes the PDP has a vice presidential candidate from my zone (South East) and I can tell you that it won ’ t be easy for them . Winning of election is all about calculation and strategic positioning and measured steps towards a direction .

“ Two things are happening ; in 2015 election , there was no voting in most of the South -East and South – South , votes were allocated . The card reader hadn ’ t become functional , it was just new and could be tampered with and at the end of the day most votes were allocated.

“ So Muhammadu Buhari was allocated 18, 000 votes in the entire Anambra State; is it possible ? When my local government Idemili South alone had 80, 000 registered voters, Idemili North 200 , 000 registered voters, you are talking about 280 , 000 votes so they were allocated votes .

“ Even if they want to allocate , they can ’ t do it now because they are not in charge of police and army like that time . They took police , army, navy everything and armoured tank and drove us away , in fact they put a price on my head.

“ This time , it won ’ t happen ; people will go and cast votes and whatever is cast is what we will announce . We are not interested in rigging or chasing people about with armoured tank . ”

On why some of the elite are not supporting the President , Ngige said , “They want the money that has been trapped by the Treasury Single Account to be pushed down again on the table for them to start taking . That one is no longer possible .

Ngige boasted that Obi had no influence in the South East as believed .
“ Peter Obi was my successor in Anambra state . I can tell you that those who are shouting that Obi is this and that are the elite , who are looking for one thing or the other and people who don’ t believe that Muhammadu Buhari has done something good in their lives because they want money .

“ Peter Obi wasn ’ t a wonderful governor as people expected him to be. I am the one to tell you because I know what I handed over to him . He is making noise that he handed money over to Obiano . I was the first to leave money ; I left N 3 . 8 bn in the bank and I am not counting the bank shares we bought and dividend .

“ I left a lot of infrastructural work done, federal roads of which he received close to N 15bn as refunds after my tenure . I was the first person to hand over schools to the missionaries in Anambra state .

I built more than 880 kilometres of roads . If you go there today you will see the roads I built 15 years ago they are still standing and most of them have no single potholes because I used first class contractors, ” he added .
