DR IBE KACHIKWU NOT ROMANCING WITH THE LEADERSHIP OF DELTA PDP
Our Dear President,
We want to first and foremost commend you for your determination to build a better country for all Nigerians. We have watched with keen interest the bold steps you have taken so far since you came on board to move the country forward. We are very proud of you. Ride on, Mr. President.
We want to draw your attention to the recent publication by the group going by the name Buhari Movement for Change (BMC) in which they faulted you for the choice of Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu as the Minister of State for Petroleum and also accusing him of romancing with the leadership of the Delta State Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mr. President, ordinarily, we would not have joined issues with the Buhari Movement for Change (BMC). But we are constrained to react to the unwarranted accusation of Dr. Ibe Kachikwu in order to put the record straight.
Your Excellency, you made a good choice in the recent appointment of Dr. Ibe Kachikwu as Minister of State for Petroleum, a highly respected technocrat. Your choice of him was a good one and we want to give you a pat on the back for making the wise choice. Thank you Mr. President.
We want to let you know Mr. President that Dr. Ibe kachikwu who is from Delta North Senatorial District with the State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa is not romancing with the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State. He is a clean man and should be spared of the accusation by the so called group seeking for recognition.
Mr. President, disregard the lies the group raised in their publication about our distinguished Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu. This is the time to allow the respected Minister to settle down for national assignment and not time for unnecessary distraction that will not do us any good.
Your Excellency, you have taken your decision on Dr. Ibe Kachikwu and let it be so. He is a round peg in a round hole and therefore the accusation against him should be disregarded. He is not romancing with PDP and we therefore give him a clean bill of health.
We know that you were guided by the Wisdom of Solomon in picking Dr. Ibe Kachikwu to serve in your cabinet. The accusation against him is unfounded and it should be dismissed.
Once again, we salute you for the confidence reposed on Dr. Ibe Kachikwu and we know he will not betray the confidence.
Long live Niger Delta Region,
Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria
