Ngige exposes how he was paid to accept Andy Uba as APC’s candidate

Senator Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, has disclosed how he refused financial inducement to accept Senator Andy Uba as the APC governorship candidate in Anambra State’s just concluded gubernatorial election. 

He stated this when speaking to APC members in his hometown of Alor. 

Senator Ngige turned down the money offer since it went against his beliefs.  

Ngige, who said he traveled from Abuja to vote in the primary election, said he was unable to vote because there were no electoral materials on the ground.

He went on to say that he later called Dapo Abiodun, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election committee and the governor of Ogun State, to notify him that no poll had been held. 

Governor Abiodun startled Ngige by announcing the results of a primary election that never took place and declaring Senator Andy Uba as the winner with over 230,000 votes. 

Despite the fact that he did not say who offered him money to accept Andy Uba as the APC candidate, Ngige claimed that he turned down the cash offer and informed the individual that he already had all the money he needs.
