“Some people will say this administration has failed, a government that built Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, Enugu-Porthacourt Expressway, restored Nigeria’s aviation industry, built railways and built many other landmark projects across the country cannot be called a failure. Buhari performed according to the resources available to him,” he said.

Ngige said that if given the opportunity to lead, he would be president everybody would be proud of.

He said, “On the account of your request, I promised you that I will consult and give reply in April when asked me to contest for president.
