Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, says he will not disclose his choice of presidential candidate between Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi.
Tinubu is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while Obi is that of the Labour Party (LP).
Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday evening, Ngige who is a member of the APC, said he will make his choice at the ballot.
“I’m not active in politics for now because I am facing national assignment,” he said when asked his preferred candidate between Tinubu and Obi.
“Both of them are my friends. My choice will be in the ballot box. It is a secret ballot. I shouldn’t tell Nigerians what I would do secretly.”
Ngige had joined the race for APC’s presidential ticket but pulled out when President Muhammadu Buhari gave his political appointees seeking elective office a deadline to resign.
Ngige chose to abandon his presidential bid to retain his position as minister.
