Oshiomhole's Rift With Ngige: Lai Mohammed Reacts

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, yesterday gave the assurance that the rift between the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, would be resolved.

Mohammed said this while answering questions from State House correspondents at the end of the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Oshiomhole and Ngige have been at loggerheads over the minister’s failure to inaugurate the board of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) with the APC chairman threatening to expel Ngige from the party and ensuring his exit from the federal cabinet.

“What happened between the minister and party chairman will be resolved,” he said.
