In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, the President noted: “the passion, zeal, and diligence that the minister brings into every responsibility, starting as a civil servant, with a distinguished record of work at National Assembly and State House Clinics, before venturing into politics in 1999, where he has served as party chieftain, governor and senator.”

He affirmed that “Ngige’s penchant for excellence drives his interest to always motivate and breed leaders, leaving a legacy of hard work in Anambra State as a governor, with landmark achievements in infrastructural development, inclusive governance that greatly inspired grassroots participation, and accountability that was dubbed, “Anambra people’s money working for the people’’.
