2023: Join Popular Political Parties If You Want Presidency – Ngige Urges Southeast Politicians

Political heads in the Southeast has been called on by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, to join popular political parties if they want to produce the next Nigeria president in 2023.

The minister stated this while urging politicians in the region to re-strategise and make adequate preparations ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

He cautioned the politicians from making the same mistake the presidential candidate of Young Progressive Party, Kingsley Moghalu, did by contesting under a new party.

Ngige added that the former Deputy Governor of Central Bank was qualified to be the country’s president but lost because he contested under an unpopular party.

He said: “Even in a village meeting, you must stand up and indicate interest for whatever position you want. You make it a topic, and of course, seek for support.”

“That’s how the game goes. You don’t stay away from the scene and at the same time be saying that you want power. So, there is still time for us, the Igbos, to go and reinforce. We need to reinforce in the two main political parties. That is what I am saying.”

“If you go to the Young Progressive Party you won’t be able to win even a local government. You are not the only one contesting. Dr. Moghalu, my very good friend who was deputy governor of the Central Bank. He said that he was going to YPP. I called him and said ‘young man, you have not carried a politics bag. You have not served anybody in politics.”

“Why would you jump into a presidential race; not even for House of Representatives?’ If he had declared for governorship, we would have, may be appealed to him to go for House of Representatives. So, one has to carry a political bag and learn from his master. You have to learn the art of politics.”
