You are a small boy from Mushin – Minister of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige drags Hon. Faleke

Dr Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment who appeared before a house of representatives ad hoc committee investigating the suspension of the management of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), dragged Hon James Faleke who he threatened with a lawsuit days ago.

Before answering questions, Ngige stated that members of the committee were his younger brothers except for Faleke who he said might be up to 60.

However after the lawmaker representing Ikeja federal constituency interrupted and disclosed that he is over 60, the Minister further insisted that he is a small boy as he (Ngige) is in same age bracket with Faleke’s mentor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He said; “So you are near my age, at least I am seven years older than you. I’m the same age with your mentor in Lagos, Asiwaju. “And I was governor with him at the same time.

He was a senator, I was a senator. I am a two time minister, he isn’t a two time minister.” After Faleke interrupted again by saying that Tinubu “won all his elections very well” ( a remark which appeared as a shade to Ngige whose election as governor of Anambra state was nullified in 2006), the Minister fired back by saying; “No problem about that, just like you won your own in Kogi state very well.

And you are now the deputy governor and governor of Kogi state.” Faleke was running mate to Abubakar Audu in the 2015 Kogi governorship election, but was denied the governorship ticket when Audu suddenly died before the election was completed.

When the lawmaker asked Ngige to respond to the questions he was asked, he said “I’m responding my friend, if you yab me, I yab you ten times. I am a Lagos boy, you are just a small boy in Lagos. Look at this Mushin boy, he’s talking with a VI boy. I lived in Victoria Island. Look at this Mushin boy from Kogi o.”
