Buhari doesn’t understand that Igbos want appointments, not development — Ngige

Igbo people prefer appointments to infrastructural development in their region, but President Muhammadu Buhari does not understand that, says Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige.

“My people love appointments. That’s where this president (Mr Buhari) didn’t get them well,” Mr Ngige said. He (Mr Buhari) felt that by giving infrastructure: if I empower you through your fertilizer plant in Ebonyi state, give loans, credits and grants to farmers in Abakaliki, Ebonyi, Imo, that our people will be happy. But these people love appointments.”
