The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has described the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, as an idle governor.
He said it was because Obiano was idle that made him to have time to take weird pictures and sending them on the internet.
Ngige spoke in Awka, the Anambra State capital during a meeting of the stakeholders of the All Progressive Congress and members of the Registration and Revalidation Committee of the party.
Criticisms recently trailed Obiano’s picture with a pet dog taking in his living room and circulated in the internet while he was reportedly holidaying in the United States of America.
Ngige also berated the ruling All Progressive Grand Alliance in Anambra State over what he called abysmal performance.
He said, “We want to drive away governor-do-nothing, who’s sitting down there. You can’t be a governor and just cross your legs and be playing music and say you are governor.
“No work is going on in this state. The people of the state are tired of APGA. We’re tired of bringing people who don’t know their left from right who just want to come and learn how to be a governor.”
Reacting to Ngige’s comments, the APGA National Chairman, Dr Victor Oye, said, “This is Jealousy Limited. What is wrong with a governor creating time out of his busy schedule to cool off after working hard to deliver democracy dividends to his people?
“Is it not said, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy? Let me ask: Which one is better: taking a photo with your pet dog or sleeping with another man’s wife – which is the pastime of some of our loud-mouthed and green-eyed politicians?
“What about those that do terrible things kept out of public glare. But Willie Obiano is real and altruistic. I stand stoutly by him, because he has made Anambra State proud, notwithstanding the shenanigans of some sanctimonious individuals who always think they are better than others.”
