Senator Chris Nwabueze Ngige, representing Anambra Central Senatorial zone yesterday, said his opponents took to rumour mongering and spreading of false message against him, over his wielding of massive support from Anambra people and declaration to contest the November 16 governorship election in the state, saying they are jittery.
Senator Ngige, who spoke during a town hall meeting and ‘thank you visit to Awka North and South constituency, urged the gathering to disregard the reports making rounds that he was amongst the 34 senators who had not presented any bill on the floor of the Senate.
Ngige highlighted his achievements in the Senate to include his co-sponsorship of the Anti-Gay Bill, The Health Bill and the National Health Insurance Commission Bill.
The former governor, who is the Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Power, boasted that apart from the Senate President and the Deputy Senate President, no senator had attracted more constituency projects than him.
He challenged those propagating the story to go to the National Assembly and verify.
He emphasized that those spreading such false rumours did not do so six months or three months ago, adding that because they feared that he wielded massive support from Anambra people, they now suddenly try to come up with one frivolous accusation or the other.
On the deportation row in the state, Ngige said had Anambra state responded to the call by the Lagos state government through its Liaison office, asking it to come and identify her citizens whom the Lagos State Government had rehabilitated and wanted to relocate back to their state, the situation couldn’t have gotten to the stage it is today.
