Last week, during the House of Representative's, there was an outburst from the Honourable minister of Labour and Employment; Senator Dr Chris Ngige. During his Outburst, he talked down Honourable Abiodun Faleke representing the Ikeja federal Constituency in the Federal House of Assembly and also did the same to Senator Ahmed Tinibu, the former Governor of Lagos State. Honorable Abiodun Faleke threw the first Tantrum at Ngige by going deviating from the NSITF to ask Ngige some derogatory questions which doesn't
Faleke Backs Tinubu For 2023 Presidency Photo Credit: Naija News Hon. James Faleke, a member of the House of Representatives representing Ikeja Federal Constituency, has again backed the presidential bid of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Faleke, a two-time chairman of Ojodu Local Council Development Area in Lagos, also disowned a video posted on the social media abusing and denouncing the APC National Leader.
Amid the recent drama that played out during the house session to probe the issues between the NSIFT and the hon minister of labor and productivity, Sen Chris Ngige, another revelation has been made by his ex-aide, the former chief press secretary to Ngige. Recall Ngige had had a face-off with the Hon member representing Ikeja federal constituency, Hon James Faleke. Ngige had told Faleke that he was not his mate and that he was his mentor, Tinubu's mate. He also called Faleke a mushin boy while he referred
Letter To Nigerians: Chris Ngige Was Right To Compare Himself With Jagaban (Bola Tinubu), Here is Why
Here is an open letter to Nigerians, we have heard some Nigerians calling for minister of labour and employment about his recent political remarks comparing himself with Bola Tinubu. I think there is nothing wrong with his statements. Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige is the current Minister of Labour and Employment in Nigeria. While addressing the House Ad Hoc Committee on the usual Breach of Presidential Orders on the suspension of top management and executive members of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund and
Ngige is clearly unable to hide his malice for Tinubu anymore. In attacking Faleke he showed derision for the people who live in Mushin. If his statement is clearly analysed, what he means when he boast that he is a V.I boy (rich) and say Faleke is a Mushin boy (poor). Definitely, he is mocking the misfortune of the Mushin people. Mocking Tinubu for not becoming a minister is the joke of the century. If Tinubu wanted a ministerial appointment he could have got it many years ahead of Ngige. Where was Ngige when
IWhat was Dr Chris Ngige insinuating by calling Chief James Abiodun Faleke "Mushin boy from Kogi ooo"? The "Kogi ooo" thing is a mockery and a denigration of the entire state. We have many people in the state that know when they are vilified. Irrespective of what the situation in my state might be, I can't fold my arms and be insulted by an outsider. I must patriotically rise in its defence. Ngige should be reminded that not all the people in this core confluence area can sell their grandpa's tomb for a
Ngige, Minister of Labour and Productivity told the representative of Ikeja Federal Constituency, Faleke, that he's on the same level with The National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu. Story in full: Ngige suspended The Management of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund for embezzling 48 billion naira fund. So, the lawmakers in the House of Representatives invited Ngige over to shed light on the suspension. As they began to question him, he told the lawmakers that he seniors all of them
It would be recalled that a viral video has been trending since Wednesday on social media. The video is actually a tip of the iceberg of what transpired between Abiodun James Faleke representing Ikeja Lagos Constituency at the House of Representatives and Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige. In the now viral video clip, Dr. Ngige threw professionalism to the dustbin when he was being asked to account to the sack of three of its finest officials of NSITF under his watch and alleged financial recklessness
As Dr Chris Ngige said some weeks back in the lower Chamber of the house of Assembly, while in a heated argument with Faleke, "respect me like you respect Tinubu, I'm not your mate" he went further to say he is political mate with Tinubu who is the godfather of Faleke. Yes this is Nigerian politics for you and that is why the world is laughing at us. Going by Dr Chris Ngige's narrative, Governor Nasir El-rufai is a political mate of Tinubu. Despite the political influence of Tinubu who is the most powerful politician
Former governor of Anambra state and current minister of Labour, Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige today left no prisoner as he made it clear that he is not a gentleman to be toyed or disgraced as he honoured the investigate panel that held today with the members of the House of Representatives. Dr Chris Nigige exchanged words with honourable Abiodun James Faleke member representing Ikeja Federal Constituency at the green Chambers. Nigige told Faleke that he was once a former governor, two times senator and a minister
Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment has stated that there is no law against the defection of Zamfara governor Bello Matawalle to the All Progressives Congress (APC). Upon receiving news of Matawalle's defection, the PDP stated that Matawalle's seat would now become vacant as a result of his defection to the APC.
A leader is never a leader if he does not inspire others to create their vision and help them turn their vision into reality. While we cannot say this for every leader, we can certainly speak of Hon. Abiodun Faleke in such manner. Indeed, he has proven that he is a man of the people as he keeps extending his hand of magnanimity to his constituency at large. He had his primary and secondary school in his Ijumu hometown before proceeding to Kaduna Polytechnic where he bagged a Higher National Diploma (HND) in
Ngige's outburst on Faleke trying to intimidate him and also proving to be 'a Lagos boy' has been trending online. The footage shows Ngige bragging and telling Faleke that he's older than Faleke and that the comparison in terms of achievements and status should be between him (Ngige) and Tinubu, whom he alleges to be Faleke's godfather. At the peak of the outburst, Ngige reminds Faleke that he (Ngige) is a Lagos Boy and one who grew up at Victoria Island (VI) for that matter. As this outburst by Ngige continues
Ngige 's outburst was needless and uncalling. He may be an eight-year Minister and still struggles to be what Tinubu is. I think it's really disrespectful for Ngige that for no reason Tinubu has been hit. Some of them have easily forgotten their roots. Ngige was first class PDP Governor between 2003 and 2006 before being removed from office and transferred to Tinubu's formed and supported party to gain ministerial office in 2015. Ngige spent only one term in the notorious Anambra administration, and was later

The House of Representatives produced another drama on Wednesday when Chris Ngige verbally attacked a House member, James Faleke. The Minister of Labour and Employment who appeared before the House to answer questions over an alleged breach of a presidential directive called Mr Faleke “a small boy”. "I am in any event seven years more older than you. I'm certain," 67-year-old Ngige told Faleke, 60. "I am of the same age as your coach in Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Furthermore, I was Governor with him simultaneously.
