The Nigeria Labour of Congress(NLC) has said that the federal government of Nigeria would be looking for problems if Chris Ngige returns as minister of labour and productivity.
According to Peter Ozo-Eson, the union’s secretary, who spoke while fielding questions from newsmen, he added that Ngige does not understand how the portfolio works before going on to implore the federal government to give him another portfolio instead of labour and productivity.
Ngige is one of the 43 ministerial nominees undergoing screening by the senate.
“We think that government will be looking for a problem if Ngige is returned to the Ministry of Labour and Productivity as a minister because he does not understand how the place works and his own approach will create an unnecessary industrial crisis,”
“If the government is properly advised, it should look for where to put him. Ngige is a square peg in a round hole in the ministry.”
