The Prophet Jones Erue-led faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State has challenged Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, to inaugurate Chief Frank Kokori as the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) Board Chairman without further delay if he has nothing sinister to conceal.
Prophet Erue, in a statement signed on his behalf by Nick Ovuakporie, Director, Communications of the faction in Asaba, described Dr. Ngige as treading a dishonourable path that is disgraceful and unbecoming of a Minister.
The factional chairman said that Ngige was putting up a “dishonourable show of shame and grandstanding,” following his persistent refusal to inaugurate the NSITF Board under the chairmanship of Kokori.
Erue described as disgraceful the free-for-all between the NLC President Ayuba Wabba, NUPENG President William Akporeha, and other labour leaders on the one hand and the Minister’s security details during a peaceful protest to compel the minister to inaugurate Chief Kokori’s NSITF Board on the other hand.
He noted that the face-off between Dr. Ngige and the NLC leadership was avoidable had the embattled minister had listened to the voice of reasoning by inaugurating the board. (Nigerian Tribune)
