The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige has

He also said that contrary to the believe that Buhari was too old for
leadership, he was actually at the best age to offer mature
leadership.
Ngige, who spoke with journalists in Awka, Anambra State said
older people make better leaders.
He added that when Malaysia was in trouble politically and
economically, it had to beckon on a 93 year-old , Dr Mahathir bin
Mohamad to lead it as prime minister.
On fears for the health of the president, he said, “That man
(Buhari) you see there is healthier than 80 percent of Nigerians.
“I’m a medical doctor, I can tell you authoritatively that he is
healthier than most people who see his health as an issue.
“He sits for over eight hours during our executive meetings. While
some of us would be going for tea break to stretch our legs, Mr
President would sit on his seat continuously, drinking only water.
“I can tell you authoritatively as a medical doctor of over three
decades standing that Mr President is physically and mentally
healthy. He is healthier than eighty percent of Nigerians.”
Ngige said Nigerians should count themselves blessed to have
such personality as their leader, saying that age and experience
were two indices the president had, that could not be found in
those who were eyeing the presidential seat in the 2019 general
elections.
Speaking on the seeming marginalisation of the Igbo by the Buhari
APC government, he said Ndigbo were the architect of their doom.
He asked the Igbo to shun primordial sentiments and expand their
political horizons by thinking positively and reaching out.
“There’s nothing that is being shared by the Buhari government
that is not equitably done. Buhari has five flagship projects; Lagos-
Ibadan to Ilorin Mambila Power Plants; Abuja-Kaduna-Kano
Highway; Second Niger Bridge and East West roads.
“You can see how it was shared. So, how are you(Igbo) left out,
why are you crying marginalization, why are you crying wolf when
there is none and it is this mentality that I’m telling you people that
you have to come out from.
“So, all I’m saying in effect is that you(Igbo) must do political
engineering; that’s the Igbos of the South East and the step to take
forward is to support a Buhari presidency for 2019/2023 and vote
for it with all their strengths.
“By so doing, they will not be left out in the power sharing that will
come thereafter like was done at this period.
