Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, is of the opinion that if the PDP, fields a presidential candidate from the North come 2023, they will perform woefully. Ngige said this during an interview with Vanguard.
The Minister who is a chieftain in APC said this while responding to a comment made that PDP might be delaying its presentation of its presidential candidate for the 2023 election so as to see the candidate the APC would field. The reporter had mentioned that there are speculations that the PDP might field a Northern candidate if APC fields a Southern candidate.
Responding, Ngige averred that voters are wiser now and that the Northern electorates will wonder what the Northern leaders have done for them over the years.
”The PDP top apparatchik think they are smart. They want to play a fast one. They are waiting for APC to say ‘South.’ Their calculation is that when that happens, they will go North. Number one, that will be an act of bad faith because it will mean that they have taken the people in the South-South and South-East that have all along supported PDP 90 percent in all the elections, for a ride.
