Arthur Eze dismisses call for banishment of monarchs by Ngige

Anambra businessman, Prince Arthur Eze, has described the call by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, for the banishment of 12 monarchs who accompanied him to Abuja as inconsequential.

Ngige had on Saturday asked the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, to banish the monarchs for travelling outside the state without government’s authorisation.

The minister also suggested that Eze be punished accordingly for sabotage.

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.
