Former Anambra State governor and current federal Minister of Labour, Chris Nwabueze Ngige has assured that he will run for Nigeria’s presidency in 2023. He said that he will declare to run for the post on Tuesday.
The erstwhile governor who ruled Anambra from 2003 to 2006 disclosed this on Easter Sunday, when he received an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) aspirant for Anambra Central seat in Nigeria’s Senate, Uzuegbuna (Uzu) Okagbue and his delegation in a visit to his home in commemoration of Easter.


During the visit, Dr. Ngige who was also an erstwhile senator who represented Anambra Central in the National Assembly, assured Chief Okagbue that his aspiration to represent Anambra Central is in order. “The way you are going is how it is done. That was how I went round, throughout Anambra Central in 1998.

Although I later did not win my party’s nomination but that consultation was useful because it made me a foremost Anambra Central politician even without winning my party’s nomination or an election”..

He urged Okagbue neither to relent nor nurse doubt in his bid because he is approaching his quest in the appropriate way.
The minister addressed Okagbue thusly: “your kingship will come. That is my prayer, and it will come. This efforts you are making will bear bountiful fruits. I am wishing you well. This journey will be useful and bear fruits”.

Speaking on his own quest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, the Alor, Anambra State-born politician said that he was still consulting leaders, across Nigeria. According to him, last Saturday, he had consultations with Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.


“He (Ugwuanyi) is not a member of my party, but he is one of the leaders of my zone. So, I consulted him. So I am consulting, but on Tuesday, I will declare for President”, Ngige said.
