The minister of labour and employment and former governor of Anambra state has described himself as a prophet who the Igbo must listen to as the 2019 general election approaches.
Ngige who stated this on Tuesday while addressing APC stakeholders and candidates in Anambra state stated that it is in “interest of the Igbo” to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 because he will win his re-election bid.
Ngige said, “I’m a prophet the Igbo should listen to. I said it in 2015 and I am saying it again to Ndigbo that Buhari will win the 2019 presidential election convincingly.”
“It will be good and in the interest of the Igbo if we give Buhari another four years. By then, it will be ‘a pass and pass out’ for him instead of giving these sugar-coated PDP deceivers the chance to come and destroy and take this country to the precipice again.
“Those who abandoned the party at the last minute, thinking the party would not win any election would live to regret it.
“We should give President Muhammadu Buhari maximum support in the 2019 general elections, that is the only and shortest way to get the presidency for the Igbo.”
Ngige urged the Igbo to disregard the promised restructuring of Nigeria by the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as no individual can do that alone.
“Restructuring by the PDP is a proper deceit because the issue of restructuring is a constitutional matter. Nobody can do it unilaterally without recourse to the National Assembly. Restructuring is a broad area,” he concluded.
