Anambra finance manager, Prince Arthur Eze, has depicted the call by the Minister of Labor and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, for the expulsion of 12 rulers who went with him to Abuja as immaterial.

Ngige had on Saturday asked the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, to exile the rulers for going external the state without government’s authorisation.

The clergyman likewise recommended that Eze be rebuffed appropriately for damage.

But in a statement on Sunday by Eze’s Head, Media Directorate, Okpala Okechukwu, he said, “The attention of the media directorate to the foremost philanthropist, industrialist business mogul and oil merchant, Prince Engr Arthur Eze has been drawn to a call by one Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngigie of Alor town.

“One would have thought that anybody occupying such a respectable office like Nwabueze Ngigie should be a person with a sound mind, articulate, well-educated and with a broad knowledge of contemporary issues in the country’s orbit of partisan politics.

“One wonders how a minister and a former governor can wake up overnight and start calling on a state governor to banish traditional rulers whose only offence is that they took a trip to Abuja to commend the president, for the magnificent jobs he is doing for the people of their geo-political zone.

He said Ngige did not take time to study the underground colourations given to the trip for political reasons by the state government, adding that ” No section of the Nigerian constitution empowers a state governor to banish or trample on the fundamental human rights of any Nigerian citizen.
