Ngige said he is also considering contesting for his previous seat on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general elections.

“The people who are pressurising me are my constituents; the people of Anambra State and some prominent people from the South-East. I am considering it, I am consulting and the result of my consultations will be made known in a fortnight” he said



  1. Chris Nwabueze Ngige, you had better consider it very well before you throw your hat into the ring because it is still these same “constituents” that are “pressurising” now that will abandon you at the middle of the road when the time comes!
