Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Productivity and Abiodun James Faleke, Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Finance engaged in war of words during an investigative hearing by the House over the sack of top management and executive members of the Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund.
The former Governor of Anambra state was reported to have suspended top management and executive committee members of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, (NSITF).
Faleke had accused Ngige of passing judgment on the board of the NSITF without proper investigation.
This was perceived to have angered Ngige who threatened to take legal action against the reps member.
Ngige described Faleke as a ‘Small boy’. He said; “You are my Junior Brother. They say Faleke is up to 60, I don’t know”.
“I am at least 7 years older you. I am sure. I am of the same age as your mentor in Lagos, Asiwaju. I was governor with him at the same time, he was a senator and I was a senator. I am a two-time minister and he is not a two-time minister.”
“If you yab me, I yab you 10 times. I’m a Lagos boy, you’re just a small boy. look at this boy, Mushin boy is talking to VI boy? I lived in Victoria island, look at Mushin Boy.” he said.
