2019: Igbo group condemns vote buying, wants Ngige back to senate

THE current grinding poverty across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria that has engendered many negative consequences including all manner of vices and social dislocation for the citizens should be a source of serious concern to all tiers of government and a wake-up call for all concerned.
