The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, declined to confirm categorically who he would be voting for, between the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and that of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi in the forthcoming 2023 Presidential election.

Ngige, a medical doctor and former Anambra State Governor stated this on Friday while speaking on Channels Television’s programme, PoliticsToday.

He stated that both men are his friends, but his vote will be decided in the secret ballot.

When asked if it would be a difficult choice to vote Tinubu, with the people from the South-East clamouring to produce Nigeria’s next president, Ngige replied: “I’ve told you I am not active in politics.

“I am facing a national assignment for now. Why are you asking me difficult questions? Both of them are my friends.

“My choice will be in the ballot box. On that day, I will make my choice.”

Ngige’s position seems understandable given the national clamor for a Nigerian President of South East origin since he and Tinubu are both ranking members of the APC whereas Obi is his fellow Anambrarian.
