The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has advised the Igbo to belong to the ruling party, All Progressives Congress to get the chance of becoming President in 2023.
He declared that the ruling APC is the only option politically for the South-East geopolitical zone to get the 2023 presidency.
Ngige, while speaking with APC members on Sunday in Alor, Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State, said Buhari had shown enough goodwill to the South-East that the area should support him by showing heavy presence in the APC.
Ngige insisted that the APC would take over Anambra State in the 2021 governorship poll as a pilot demonstration of overwhelming acceptance of the party in the zone.
He said that APC led Federal government has done so much for the region and thus the party remains the best option for the people of Southeast.
“This is our last major fight. I will fight the way I did when I contested the senatorial election of Anambra Central in 2010.
“The Federal Government of President Buhari has done for well for the Igbo.
“The Social Investment Programme for women of President Buhari is second to none.
