Minister Chris Ngige’s Rumoured Death Causes Ripples

A rumoured death of the Minister of Labour, Dr. Chris Ngige, shook the National Assembly on Thursday. But investigations showed that the former Senator and former Governor of Anambra State, did not even visit the National Assembly complex on the day people were claiming he died there.

A around midday on Thursday, rumour spread in the National Assembly that Ngige had come to the House of Reps to defend the 2016 budget of his ministry but collapsed in the process.

But Ngige is said to be in far away Zambia for an official assignment. The minister, in a terse reaction, quickly dismissed the rumour of his death.

His Personal Assistant, Nwachukwu Ngige, relayed the minister’s post in which he dismissed the rumour.

He wrote, “Dear friends , please disregard the wicked tissue of lies, contained in an online publication about an unfortunate incident said to have taken place today (Thursday) at the National Assembly and in which I was said to have been involved.

“I am currently not in the country let alone being at the National Assembly. I have since Monday, February 15, 2016 been attending the 42nd Ordinary Session of the African Regional Labour Advisory Council, taking place in Zambia.

“The meeting ends tomorrow (today). Indeed, as the Vice-Chairman of today’s session, I had the privilege of moderating as well as giving the vote of thanks on behalf of other African countries."
The truth is someone actually took ill at the National Assembly but it was not Chris Ngige.
