According to report reaching OYOGist.com, the Honorable Minister of Labour, Senator Chris Ngige has reportedly blast a member of the House of Representatives, Hon. James Faleke, calling him a ‘small boy’ from Kogi State, he also told him that his mentor (Asiwaju Bola Tinubu) and him are of the same age. He also said to Hon. Faleke that his mentor was Governor for two times and the same applies to him as he is a two times Minister.

The verbal battle between the two on Tuesday, during a hearing of the Adhoc Committee of the House representatives, which is investigating an alleged breach of a presidential directive by him.

Senator Ngige was believed to have suspended top management and committee member of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, (NSITF) when he wasn’t permitted to do so.

Faleke accused Ngige of taking action on his own without a proper investigation or due process but this accusation got Ngige annoyed and it eventually led to the argument.


It is what they called ‘a different day has his own taste’, in Nigeria politics today a lot is already happening especially the recent probing of agencies by the Federal government.

“You are my Junior Brother. They say Faleke is up to 60, I don’t know. I am 7 years older you. I am sure. I am the same age as your mentor in Lagos, Asiwaju. I was governor with him at the same time, he was a senator, and I am 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,” Ngige said.
