Chris Ngige Shocks The Entire Nation, Reveals How President Buhari Single-Handedly Spent Billions Of Naira For Burial Ceremony

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has spent over N1 billion for the burial arrangement of former Vice President, Alex Ekwueme.

Ngige made this revelation on Sunday, at Ekwueme’s hometown in Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, after inspecting facilities for the burial of the late Vice President.

He said: “You know that I belong to the Ekwueme family; I am part of that family.

“I am in various committees and subcommittees for the burial of this great statesman. I can tell you authoritatively that Mr. President (Buhari) is committed and passionate in ensuring a befitting burial for Ekwueme.

“If he does not come for the burial himself, I am sure the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, will be here for the burial, as a matter of right.

“So, I am here to inspect the facilities in preparation for his burial; and I can tell you that I am satisfied with the progress of work.

“The Federal Government is doing rehabilitation works on Amawbia/Ekwulobia road, up to Uga and Akokwa, in Imo State.

“We are also doing road rehabilitation on Oko/Umunze road, up to Ibinta in Abia State.

“I know the cost of all this, not less than N480 million.

“The Federal Government is building the mausoleum, which will contain a modern library and other facilities, and I also know the cost of that too.

“And remember that the Federal Government took up all the medical bills of flying him abroad and bringing him back to Nigeria from London, upon his death.

“The cost of hiring an air ambulance is not a joke. So, Buhari has honoured this Igbo son in all ramifications.

“He has committed not less than a billion naira in this project, because he is passionate about it”, Ngige stated.

The Minister added that the Federal Government was considering naming a national monument after Ekwueme to immortalise him.
