All Progressives Congress chie ftain and Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige made a serious mistake yesterday at the APC mega rally in Ekiti when he mistakenly endorsed Ayodele Fayose, incumbent governor and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) member as one, to be voted for in the July 14th governorship election in Ekiti state.
Fayose has now taken to social media to thank Ngige for the blunder, saying he ‘is not always afraid to say the truth’ – even in the presence of the President and other APC leaders’.
I thank my good friend, Dr Chris Ngige for campaigning for me at the APC rally in Ado Ekiti yesterday. Dr. Ngige is a man who is not always afraid to say the truth and that's what he demonstrated yesterday even in the presence of the President and other APC leaders.

See some reactions
Are you sure Sir that it was not a mistake of name calling? Anyway it seems you are already jittery of what will happen to you after leaving office because heaven will not save you from the hands of EFCC…

Is Fayose on the ballot ? We can’t wait to have you on the dock facing your criminal charges.

This is what you have to hang on. Campaign for you how? Are you running for Ekiti governorship election? The man made mistake, which is human and immediately corrected himself. Get serious. Governance is not for jokers
