Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has thanked President Muhammadu Buhari’s Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, for campaigning for his governorship candidate.
TheNewsGuru reports the Minister of Labour and Employment got himself into a big mess on Tuesday at the All Progressives Congress (APC) mega rally held at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in Ado Ekiti.
Ngige, instead of campaigning for the APC party he represents, he faltered and campaigned for the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor Fayose instead, in the presence of his boss and the mammoth crowd present at the rally.
Reacting to the development, Fayose called the Minister his good friend, and thanked him for campaigning for him, saying the Minister is not afraid to say the truth.
“I thank my good friend, Dr Chris Ngige for campaigning for me at the APC rally in Ado Ekiti yesterday.
“Dr. Ngige is a man who is not always afraid to say the truth and that’s what he demonstrated yesterday even in the presence of the President and other APC leaders,” he said.
Ngige at the rally, turning to President Buhari, said, “Mr President, the leaders of our party, our people are ready, they are ready and on Saturday it will happen.
“Especially those from the South west for the mistake they made in 2014, so they won’t make that mistake again”.
“If you marry two wives, you go know which one wey better. Fayose is the better Wife, he dey cook, he dey give him husband better food, he no dey give am trouble, so you must bring back Fayose on Saturday,” he said to the amazement of the crowd.
