The Save Nigeria Anti-Corruption Coalition has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sack the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, “over his continued incompetence and inability to properly address the fuel scarcity situation in the country as also the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and most recently, his unguarded statement asking Nigerians to continue living with the terrifying situation till the month of May.”

In a statement signed by its Executive Director, Comrade Femi Lawson, and made available to News Express on Monday the group accused Kachikwu of sabotaging the efforts of President Buhari to restore sanity in the oil sector. It also accused him of deliberately treading “paths that have tendencies to create instability in the Nigerian polity through such insensitive utterances.”

The statement said in part: “Why has Mr. Kachikwu continued to embarrass President Buhari and by extension, Nigerians, by being unable to come out with a logical road map to address the situation, through his expected role at the Petroleum Minister and the NNPC. Today, Nigerians are faced with the consequence the incompetencies of the Ministers of State and his lack of understanding of our feelings as Nigerians.”

The group further said that failure by President Buhari to sack Dr. Kachikwu “will speak volume of how important Nigerians are, in the face of this administration.”

“We shall ensure that we use every legitimate means to engage Nigerians to further press for the removal of Mr. Kachikwu who from all indication have proven not to be competent enough to tackle the agony being faced by Nigerians at this critical moment,” the statement concluded.
