Ahead of the February elections, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has described the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi as his brother and friend who he cannot work against.
While the former Anambra governor declared that all the major contenders for the country’s top job are his friends who had assisted him in time past, he described Obi as his everything.
Ngige said following his relationship with all the candidates, he would not be working for any of them.
According to him, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu are also his friends.
The minister stated this on Wednesday when he was speaking to journalists in his country home in Alor.
He said: “Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar was the man who was in helm of affairs when I was ‘kidnapped’- when I was shoved out of office.
“He was standing in for Mr President (Obasanjo), who was in Maputo, and he ordered the Inspector General of Police then, to reinstate me to office.
“Peter Obi, my brother, my successor and my everything, I know him too and he is a friend. So, how do I campaign against any of them?”
