Controversial Senator representing Anambra Central, Dr. Chris Ngige, has come under fire for allegedly coveting the wife of Mr. Peter Obi, the man who defeated him in the epic political battle for the governorship of Anambra State, South-East Nigeria.  

The diminutive Ngige was accused of ‘crossing the boundary’ when he “forcefully took over the seat meant for Governor Peter Obi beside Gov Obi’s wife” at a church funeral service on Friday.

In an article entitled “Sinator Ngige Crosses the Boundary,” prolific Anambra writer Mazi Odera castigated Ngige, saying: “At All Saints Anglican Church, Irefi, Oraifite, Anambra, during the burial service for the late Dame Irene, Nneka Mmachukwu, Okwuosa, the mother of Azuka Okwuosa, Dr. Chris Ngige forcefully took over the seat meant for Governor Peter Obi beside Gov Obi’s wife.”

The article published on several online communities was accompanied with a photograph (reproduced here) that had as caption: “Look at the picture. Her Excellency was thoroughly embarrassed, while Ngige looked defiant.”

The article spoke of how Mrs. Obi’s security details attempted to stop Ngige but the governor’s wife, not wanting to create a scene, prevented them from doing so. It said that the senator justified his action by claiming that one man does not marry a woman in Igboland.

According to Odera: “We understood that Dr. Ngige abandoned his wife in Maryland USA for reasons best known to him, but for him to openly defy shame, for him to show this childish lust, for him to be this desperate to take over the wife of a sitting Governor . . . it is more than shameful and absurd.
“As security people attached to Obi’s wife tried to stop him, the woman, as humble and well-mannered as her husband, restrained them. Maybe she must have noticed that the man had no shame and may even want to wrestle the woman if she dare get angry, she showed class and maturity. 
“The ever witty Ngige, not to be beaten in his own game, said: ‘It is not ordained that her husband must seat by her side, after all, in Igbo land, ofu onye anaghi anu Nwanyi.’ Though everybody was angry at Ngige’s lack of manners and respect, but what he said provided the much-needed comic relief in an environment   charged by Ngige’s indiscretion.”

“The question,” according to the writer, is: “If he must lust after married women, must it be after the wife of a sitting governor of a state he desperately wanted to govern?”
