Chris Ngige Blames Abdulsalami Abubakar For ALL That Is Wrong With Today’s Nigeria

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chief Chris Ngige, yesterday, in Enugu, flayed the Gen. Abudulsalami Abubakar regime that jettisoned the National Constitutional Conference crafted under late Gen. Sani Abacha which provided for rotational presidency, arguing that it would have quelled the strident agitation for Biafra Republic by different separatist groups in the south-east geopolitical zone.

The former Governor of Anambra State revealed that rather than adopt the NCC which Gen. Abubakar met as Abacha’a successor, he back-tracked and amended portions of the 1979 Constitution which is responsible for the country’s woes.

He was answering a question from the former Minister of Information, Chief John Nnia Nwodo who complained that the country was not only moving too slow but needed to be restructured in line with the recommendations of the 2014 National Constitutional Conference, NCC.

Nwodo also complained that it took Buhari five months to appoint ministers and another five months to prepare his budget.

This came on the day the Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbe, also during a Town Hall Meeting held for political, religious, judicial and faith-based groups at the Nike-Lake Resort Hotel, said that the Buhari administration inherited a bogus debt of N67 billion under the guise of procuring seedlings by the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
