The community pledged to purchase Buhari’s reelection nomination form.
It said it would do this because of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, who had shown demonstrable interest in the community right from his days as the governor of the State from 2003 and 2006.
The traditional ruler of the community and the president general of the town, Igwe Emeka Ilounoh and Samuel Nweke, respectively stated this in their separate speeches when the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige performed the groundbreaking for the construction of the Federal Specialist Skills Acquisition centre in Ifitedunu.
They stated that the major road to the community was constructed by Dr Ngige when he was governor of the state.
“2019 will be payback time for this our great son and friend , Dr Chris Ngige, for all he had done for us as a governor, senator and minister of the federal Republic of Nigeria. We will give President Muhammadu Buhari 100 per cent of our votes in the election because of Dr Ngige.”
The community commended the Federal Government for remembering them in the distribution of its infrastructure while thanking Ngige for facilitating the project.
