2023 Election: Ngige reveals his right for contesting for president
Dr. Chris Ngige, Minister of Labor and Employment, has expressed that he reserves the right to contest for Senate or presidency in 2023.
In denying the news, Ngige commented that he would be interested to contest next year’s elections for the governorate of Anambra.
He spoke on Sunday at his home town, Idemili South Anambra State Local Government Area.
Ngige, who was a former one-term governor of the state, however, declared that he has no interest in becoming governor because he’s on a national assignment as Minister.
Ngige said: “Yes, there have been speculations that I am eyeing the governorship of Anambra State. They have written about it in a lot of media. I am a politician. They have the right to speculate on my next move. My next move is very vast.
“Elections will come in 2023, I have a right to vie for any position. I can vie for Senate.
“I can vie for president if I so wish. The election will be coming in Anambra State, the latest November 2021 to elect a successor to Obiano. I am not disqualified. I have a right to say I can run.
“I don’t have interest for now in Anambra governorship because I am on a national assignment as a minister.”
