Senator Victor Umeh, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has given a political jab to Senator Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, and the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State. He called him a political boaster and unrepentant loser. In his words, “What happened in 2017 is supposed to be fresh in the mind of Dr Chris Ngige whom I read in various newspapers insulting APGA, insulting the government, and writing us off.”
As Umeh said,
“He has boasted repeatedly and on each occasion, we defeated him to stupor. APGA as a party has a structure in every corner in Anambra State. He is boasting that he must take power from APGA and flush us out on November 6. After all his boasts in the previous elections, he has always lost his ward. And on November 6, 2021, he will lose his ward again. Because he has never won in his ward. When he says these things I don’t know whether he thinks that we are no longer alive. He is a customer I have had since 2003.
“In 2003, we defeated him in almost all the polling units in Anambra State and PDP rigged the election and put him in power. And we went to the court and got rid of him. In 2010, he tried it again and we bashed him very badly. So, he has always been losing election to APGA. In 2011, he lost senatorial election to Prof Dora Akunyili. He rigged the election, we went to the tribunal, and with his tricks he frustrated the petition from being heard because he had seen the results of the election and he knew he had lost. And after 180 days, the petition was struck out. There was no judgement delivered. So, he didn’t win the election. There’s no election in Anambra State that Ngige can say he has won.”
