His words, “We think that government will be looking for problem if Ngige is returned to the Ministry of Labour and Productivity as minister, because he does not understand how the place works and his own approach will create an unnecessary industrial crisis.
“If the government is properly advised, it should look for where to put him. Ngige is a square peg in a round hole in the ministry.”
