Chris Ngige Booed In Enugu Over Buhari’s ‘Lopsided Appointments’

The people from the South-East region on Monday, in Enugu, booed the Minister of Labour ?and Productivity, Chris Ngige, after he tried to defend appointments so far made by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr. Ngige was in the Enugu State capital to speak at the Town Hall session for the South-East region organised by the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture.

But as he spoke, he was repeatedly jeered by those in the hall who kept shouting “No no no”.

At a point the hall became uncontrollable, and it took a lot of efforts for organisers to restore order.

Some participants complained that Mr. Buhari had so far marginalised the zone in the appointments made so far.

Mr. Ngige had tried to defend President Buhari’s appointments, saying a leader must be allowed to work with people he could trust, a line of argument that sparked further jeers.

Some of those at the event expressed displeasure at the level of neglect they said the region was facing.

Among the issues raised was the ongoing forgery trial of the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, with the Ohanaeze Ndigbo vowing to resist any move to remove him.
