Emerging reports suggests that Nigeria’s minister of labour and employment, Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige collapsed today at the National Assembly.
Daily Post reports that the minister collapsed while defending his ministry’s budget before the House of Representatives’ Committee on labour.
Sources disclose that he was immediately rushed to a hospital. Senator Ngige’s sudden collapse is a wake-up call for Nigerian public office holders to be sure they are fit health-wise always.
It would be recalled that the General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare had a similar experience in which he was also rushed to a hospital after he reportedly collapsed, while delivering a lecture in Lagos state.
