Ondo Election Rally: My grouse with Ngige, By Eze Harris Chuma

I saw Senator Chris Ngige, the Honourable Minister of Labour and others gyrating at the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in Ondo State.
I saw Dr Ngige, in his usual Igbo traditional chieftaincy regalia, shouting Igbo kwenu, at the event. I saw hypocrisy at play. I saw betrayal and mischief in his smiles. I saw a man who only remembers Ndigbo during electioneering seasons.
How long would you selfish political leaders take the Igbo in Diaspora for a ride?
How long would you drag the Igbo to the polls and abandon them after the elections?
How long would you continue to play the divide and rule game?
When was the last time Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige had a town hall meeting with the Igbo community in Ondo? Does he really care enough for the welfare and wellbeing of the Igbos in Ondo State? Why was he blabbing at the rally? Does Ngige think that the Igbo in Ondo State are fools, who will lend themselves to be used and dumped again by desperate politicians in the state? The only time the Igbo are considered relevant in Ondo State is during electioneering period!
Anybody who knows Ngige should advise him to respect himself! He should stop parading himself as an Igbo political leader, whereas he is after his pocket!
Honourable Minister Chris Ngige, Sir, stop playing selfish politics with Ndigbo in Ondo State. You have nothing to offer them!
No! No!! No!!! Stop the nonsense!
