A skit of the drama between Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, and James Faleke before a house of representatives ad hoc committee, has surfaced online and gone viral.
Faleke, who is representing Ikeja federal constituency, is a member of the ad hoc committee investigating the suspension of the management of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF).
But on July 22, Ngige, before answering questions, had stated that members of the committee were his younger brothers, except Faleke whom he described as a small boy from Mushin, a suburb in Lagos.

“So you are near my age, at least I am seven years older than you. I’m the same age as your mentor in Lagos, Asiwaju. And I was governor with him at the same time,” the minister had fired at Faleke.
This was after the lawmaker had interrupted the minister, saying he was well over 60.
The ad hoc committee member further charged Ngige to respond to the questions asked of him, prompting the minister to say: “I’m responding, my friend. If you yab (diss) me, I yab you ten times.

But on Saturday, another clip, which was edited from that which was taken during the house of reps session, surfaced online, infusing beats and dance moves by kids such as to make fun of the minister’s rant.
