We Will Vote for Osinbajo to Replace Pastor Adeboye as RCCG Overseer- Dr. Chris Ngige .

Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Chris Ngige is known for his bluntness.
At the solemn occasion at the burial of his subordinate and Junior Minister, James Ocholi, Ngige tried to liven up the crowd filled with sad people.
Among other jokes Ngige shared, he jokingly said Nigerian Ministers will vote for Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to become the General Overseer of the Redeem Christian Church of God.
It was not all tears, crying and wailing at the funeral of the late Minister for State for Labour and Productivity, James Ocholi, his wife, Blessing and finally his son, Joshua.
Chris Ngige, who was giving the vote of thanks at the end of the event, virtually joked about every personality he recognised.
While doing the vote of thanks, he went further to say jokingly that the Ministers in FEC will gladly join the RCCG just to vote Osinbajo as the Church's Overseer if there was an election to vote in the Church .
Ngige's comment elicited laughter from the crowd and even drawing a smile from Osinbajo himself. Not done, Ngige also reminded his audience that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Babachir David Lawal, is a pastor.
However, he said the word 'pastor in a low tone, because according to him he was not really sure of that appendage on Lawal. Another laughter erupted .
Ngige, then finally took on Senator Dino Melaye, saying he is a traditional ruler in Kwara State, after which he lambasted supporters of Former Governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada, for chanting the former's name when he recognised him.
He said: "those who shouted now are those arranged crowd that troop to the court when an election Petition Tribunal is sitting . They are hired crowd."
Looking at the direction of the supporters, Ngige said " don't worry, we will find you people job, so that no one will hire you as supporters again.
It is obvious Ngige did all he did just to liven up the situation at the funeral.
Earlier during his speech, Ngige had also jokingly referred to Governor Yahaya Bello as " Governor who inherited votes".
