The All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday, asked the Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachukwu, to honourably resign his position if he is not capable of doing his part, by efficiently running the ministry assigned to him and providing workable solution to the current fuel scarcity in the country.
National leader of APC, Senator Bola Tinubu, had first called the minister to order over his recent comments on the lingering fuel scarcity in the country.
The party, in a statement issued by the APC national vice chairman, South-South, Prince Hilliard Eta, said it was high time the minister climbed down from “his high horse” to face squarely the duties required of him by his office, adding that responsibility to the people was one of the cardinal points of the APC which he professes membership.”
According to the statement, “Kachukwu has not entirely cast off the orientation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he was,” noting that such was still manifesting in his actions and utterances.
“Dr Kachukwu must not be a cog in the wheel of progress and he should do the needful by resigning honourably if he is not capable of doing his part by efficiently running the ministry assigned to him,” the statement read.
