    NGIGE: I Left N12.8b In Anambra

    Former Governor of Anambra State, Senator Chris Ngige says he left N12.8 billion in Anambra State Government’s coffers before leaving office in 2006.
    Ngige, who took his campaign for Anambra State governorship election to Lagos on Thursday, said his political enemies counted his achievement as a great feat and urged the people of Anambra State to elect him governor in the 16 November election.

    Speaking at the rally, which took place at the International Trade Fair Complex in Ojo, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, Ngige lamented his inglorious exit from government in 2006, saying that he was coming back to finish his uncompleted task as successive administrations in Anambra State had not been able to achieve his feat.
    He promised the people of Anambra State that he would build a world class international airport in the state if elected in November, urging the people to support him in the bid to take Anambra to another level.
    “I am not saying that I am good because no man is good but God alone. When compared to others in the state interested in the same office, I stand a better chance to give the people a transparent government,” he said.

    He vowed to eradicate rising criminal activities in Anambra State, saying that Igbo traders in Lagos could cast aspersion on his government if he failed to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
    Ngige also spoke on the recent relocation of destitute Igbo from Lagos to Anambra State, accusing Governor Peter Obi of misleading the public with the true picture of event.
    He said that 70 percent of people relocated to Anambra were not Igbo even though they bore Igbo names.
    “When Peter Obi called to inform me about the development, I asked for the list of those deported and I found out that some the names were not even Igbo. They were trying to associate me with the deportation; I cannot be part of that. Lagos State Governor has also come out openly to apologise. Igbo is the only tribe in Lagos that has an honourable commissioner in Lagos cabinet,” he stated.

    Lagos State Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Ben Akabueze, who represented Governor Babatunde Fashola at the rally, said Ngige was very familiar with Lagos, urging the people of Anambra to support him by casting their votes for him.
