Tinubu’s Ambition: Igbo Should Fight For Presidency, Not Wait For It – Ngige


The minister of labor and employment, Dr. Chris Ngige has said that 2023 presidential slot should be fought for by the people of the Southeast.
Ngige spoke on the recent revelation of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki that former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu was scheming to be handed power by President Buhari after a second term in office.
The minister, who spoke to journalists at the weekend, said there was nothing wrong in Tinubu aspiring to become the president of Nigeria, stressing that it behooved on the people of the Southeast to struggle for it when power shifts to the south in 2023.
Ngige said, “What Saraki was saying is a non-issue as far as I’m concerned. Asiwaju has the right to aspire. He is a human being. All of us have our ambitions. He’s my friend.
He has the right to aspire. After all, he aspired to the post of vice president. You can’t kill people’s ambitions. We’re in politics to serve and if you feel you can serve in a very high office, you should aspire to go there.
“It is left for those who are politicking with you to also square up and do their own work if they feel it’s their turn, they should do their own work so that they will be more acceptable than yourself. Power is not served, you must struggle for it.
“So, on moral grounds, on basis of equity, it will be the turn of the South East. South East must step out to say it is our turn with enough punch and convincing reasons.
Part of the reasons and the arguments will be that we are the only people that have not tasted it before and it will then touch people. But if you go into your bedrooms and stay and you are not in the party that makes the masquerade, I don’t know how you can come and say, ‘put the masquerade on me’.
