Chris-Ngige2View From The Top, on this edition, plays host to former Anambra State Governor, Dr Chris Ngige.

Senator Ngige took on several issues surrounding Nigeria’s democracy, his time as Governor, being in the opposition party and losing the Anambra State governorship election to All Progressive Grand Alliance’s Willie Obiano.

Recalling the irregularities witnessed in past elections and how this has affected the Nigerian democracy, he said that Nigeria had taken steps backwards rather than moving forward.

Although he admitted that the 2011 elections were fair, he insisted that Nigeria should be aiming to do better rather than getting worse, as seen in the Anambra governorship where he claimed to have lost due to disenfranchising of his supporters.

Ngige said that he had learnt a lot of lessons as he was beaten by the tactics of their opponents.

He, however, stated that these rigging as done in Anambra cannot be tried in Ekiti State as the APC was well aware of the opposition’s tactics.
