End Of The Road As Buhari’s Minister, Ibe Kachikwu, NNPC GMD, Maikanti Baru, Face Immediate Sack

The Organising Secretary Headquarters of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Khalifa Bello Adamu, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Group Managing Director, GMD, of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru; and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resoucres, Ibe Kachikwu, over the worsening fuel scarcity rocking the country.

The statement reads in part:

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the NNPC Boss, Maikanti, and the Minister of State For Petroleum, Ibe Kacjikwu, over worsening fuel scarcity.

“Of great concern is the silence on those at the helm of affairs on the cause of the scarcity until date. When it was thought that the scarcity at the tail end of last year was due to the Christmas, well into the New Year, the lack of the commodity is a great cause of worry.

“In fact on a visit to the Presidency in December last year, the GMD of the NNPC Maikanti Baru, told State House reporters the Federal Government has tamed the monster of fuel scarcity. Then he said the scarcity was as a result of a rumour that fuel price would be increased.

“But having debunked that claim, it is still unclear why the scarcity still persists and neither the NNPC nor the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Emmanuel Kachikwu has not explained to Nigerians what is the problem this time around. Their continuous silence show complicity in the matter for can none of them have come out to address the matter for such a long time.

“It is clear for now that both the NNPC and the Minister don’t have the solution to checkmate this scarcity. They have failed Nigerians and the nation and should resign. In fact, all efforts by the Federal Government to check scarcity seem to have been frustrated by the GMD and Kachikwu”, Adamu said.

He added that Nigerians are tired of the lack of focus of those at the top echelon of the oil sector, and that they should give way for more competent people to drive the sector forward.

He added that if the fuel situation fails to abate in the next one week, the Council will be compelled to mobilise Nigerian youths to seal the offices of the NNPC and the Ministry of Petroleum Resources.
