Great Tension!!! The Northern Cabals Are Plotting To Kill The State Minister For Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu – Group Raises Major Alarm

Emerging report indicates that the life of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kackikwu, is under threat by some Northern cabals.

This shocking disclosure was made known on Sunday, by the Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change, NDIMRC.

In a statement signed by its President, Nelly Emma; Secretary, John Sailor; and Public Relations Officer, PRO,  Stanley Mukoro; which was made available to Journalists, the NDIMRC claimed that the planned declaration of Crocodile Smile II in the Niger Delta, was to check the resistance of the people to the allocation of the oil blocs.

Recall, that Kachikwu had in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, complained about some appointments and reorganisations carried out in the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, without his input.

“We have been watching the activities of the GMD of the NNPC, Dr. Baru, since he came on board, and we are not impressed with the way he is treating the Minister of State for Petroleum, and people from the Niger Delta region working in the NNPC.

“The Northern cabals are plotting to kill Kachikwu, and his life is under constant threat. We have seen that the GMD of NNPC is bent on destroying the solid foundation laid by the Minister of State for Petroleum, and determined to frustrate the Minister, but we are not going to take this likely, because the oil Dr. Baru is presiding over belongs to the people of the Niger Delta Region, and not the North.

“The Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, must be allowed to take charge of the Board of NNPC, which the President inaugurated.

“Our findings revealed that the recent appointments and postings were done without the knowledge of the Board. Members of the Board learnt of these appointments from the social media and the press release of NNPC. This is bad enough, and must not be encouraged”, the group said.

It added that: “We are not happy with the way the Minister is being frustrated. He should be allowed to exercise his power as the Chairman of the NNPC Board.

“They should let the whole world know why he is not being allowed to function effectively as the Chairman of the Board.

“The Minister was transparent when he was the GMD of NNPC, he carried out ethnic balancing, but the reverse is now the case since Dr. Baru was appointed.

“The current Board of the NNPC must be empowered and given free hand to operate”.

“The office of the Minister of State for Petroleum, must be saved from further humiliation and disrespect.

“The Minister is not anti-North, as all appointments made by him in the past were balanced and based strictly on skills, experience, drive, and ethnic balancing, for senior management positions, but this is not the case with the current GMD of the NNPC”, the group alleged.
