The Minister of State for Petroleum, Mr Ibe Kachikwu, said on Tuesday in Abuja that he would not resign as he still had a lot of work to do.

The minister said this as part of his closing remarks while briefing the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Upstream) on the lingering scarcity of petroleum products across the country.

The News Agency of Nigerian (NAN) reports that different groups including the South South APC, NANS and some Civil Society Organisations have called for the minister’s resignation.
Kachikwu said: ``All those planning to come to Abuja for a protest should save their fuel, I am not going to resign, I have a lot of work to do.’’

He said he did not accept to be minister of petroleum in order to create scarcity.
The minister assured that he would work hard to find lasting solutions to the problems in the industry.
Kachikwu said that he was pained that the country still suffered petroleum scarcity in spite of being one of the largest producers of crude oil in the world.

  1. It so obvious that these guys have gat notin to offer the masses. Didn't he grow up in Nigeria? why are they pretending? mtchew!
    Kachikwu is a junior minister and so it anything should be don, its his sack and if anyone is to resign then i think it should be PMB who doubles as a minister for petroleum.

  2. Don't you think we should give the new government some more time before we start scoring them?
