Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, says President Buhari is healthier than 80 p.c of Nigerians. The Minister mentioned this about President Buhari when he spoke with journalists in Awka, Anambra State.
In accordance with Ngige, the age of President Buhari doesn’t in anyway impede his management expertise. He drew instance from Malayia the place he mentioned when the nation was in chaos, that they had to usher in 93-year-old, Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, to steer it as a major minister.
When he was requested to talk on the seeming fatigued persona president Buhari has been seen to have in current occasions, Ngige mentioned
“That man (Buhari) you see there is healthier than 80 per cent of Nigerians. I’m a medical physician; I can inform you authoritatively that he is healthier than most individuals who see his well being as a difficulty. He sits for over eight hours throughout our govt conferences. Whereas some of us can be going for tea break to stretch our legs, Mr President would sit on his seat constantly, ingesting solely water. I can inform you authoritatively as a medical physician of over three many years standing that Mr President is bodily and mentally wholesome. He is healthier than 80 per cent of Nigerians”.
Ngige refuted claims in some quarters that the Buhari-led authorities had marginalized the Igbos in its three years in workplace.
“There’s nothing that is being shared by the Buhari authorities that is not equitably executed. Buhari has 5 flagship tasks; Lagos-Ibadan to Ilorin Mambila Energy Crops; Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Freeway; Second Niger Bridge and East West roads. You may see the way it was shared. So, how are you(Igbo) disregarded, why are you crying marginalisation, why are you crying wolf when there is none and it is this mentality that I’m telling you folks that it’s a must to come out from. So, all I’m saying in impact is that you simply (Igbo) should do political engineering; that’s the Igbo of the South-East and the step to take ahead is to help a Buhari presidency for 2019/2023 and vote for it with all their strengths. By so doing, they won’t be disregarded within the power-sharing that can come thereafter like was executed at this era.”he mentioned
