 2023: Ngige withdraws from presidential race NGIGE75404

The Minister of State for Labour, Employment and Productivity, Chris Nwabueze Ngige has withdrawn from the 2023 presidential race.

This is coming less than three weeks after his declaration at Alor, his town in Anambra State.

In a statement he issued, which was obtained by Press in Abuja on Friday, Ngige said his declaration, which was transmitted live was as a result of pressures from friends, supporters and allies, given that he has the qualifications to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

He disclosed that his supporters had purchased the nomination form for him, which he was, in spite of that, yet to fill and submit.

His statement said: “On Tuesday, 19th April 2022, I publicly declared my interest to contest for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, following the constitutional provision that precludes our amiable incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari from seeking re-election to the office, as he would have completed his two terms in office by 29thMay 2023.

“The declaration was made in my hometown, Alor, Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

“My declaration was sequel to pressure on me from my constituents, political associates, friends and other well-meaning Nigerian People, who felt I possessed the necessary qualifications and experience for the job."

Ngige said his supporters contributed money to purchase the expression of interest and nomination form of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He further revealed that he had an audience with President Muhammadu Buhari over the development after he earlier met him on his political ambition.
