A man in his late 50s, yesterday, slumped and died at the House of Representatives wing of the National Assembly sparking rumours that it was the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige who slumped and died during his ministry’s budget defence.
However, the minister has taken to social media to debunk the death tales saying he was hale and hearty.
The deceased, whose identity remains unknown, reportedly slumped at the third floor of the House of Representatives about 10a.m. in front of the office of Chairman, House Committee on Police Affairs and efforts by a medical team to revive him failed.
Ngige through his Personal Assistant, Nwachukwu Ngige wrote on his Facebook wall: “Dear friends, please disregard the wicked tissue of lies contained in an online publication about an unfortu-nate incident said to have taken place today at the National Assembly and in which I was said to have been involved.”
