Anambra billionaire businessman, Prince Arthur Eze, has directed his media team not respond to statements by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, against him.
Both personalities have been engaged in a brawl, following the Abuja trip where Eze took twelve monarchs from Anambra to Abuja, to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, including Igwe MacAnthony Okonkwo, the traditional ruler of Alor community, where Ngige hails from.
The Anambra State Government suspended the monarchs for a period of one year. but Dr Ngige insisted that they be banished as keeping them in their respective communities will be detrimental, also that Eze be punished severely for initiating the move.
Eze had replied Ngige’s call for his punishment, while Ngige responded with more attacks, but on Wednesday, he (Eze) instructed his aides to ignore Ngige.
In his press statement made available to The DAILY VENDOR, by the oil mogul’s media team, and signed by Eze himself, he said he does not expect respect from Ngige, who had once disrespected his biological father by dragging him to court.
“I have instructed my Media Directorate not to further reply or dignify the tirades of Mr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige, Nigeria’s most unfortunate and accidental minister with a reply or response.
“For I should not expect respect from he who once dragged his biological father to court. I think his irresponsible behaviour both to the National Assembly, his Alor community and the public as a minister are genetic as he also lacks social comportment and public decorum,” he said.
Meanwhile, the 12 monarchs who traveled alongside Eze have since apologized to Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, admitting their wrongdoing.
