TMG demands Kachikwu’s resignation over fuel woes

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe KachikwuABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) has called on Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, to resign over  the fuel price hike.

The group accused him of a lack of understanding of the issues in the oil  and gas sector.

The group said it would join forces with labour and other activists to resist this hike.

“With the many economic woes afflicting the country, including job losses, massive unemployment and galloping inflation, the least we expected the  government to do was to give Nigerians a breather, and allow some form of recovery to take place through a stimulus package injected into the economy to rev it back to life before placing any further burdens,” said  TMG Chairman, Ibrahim Zikirullahi.

He said Nigerians felt let down by Kachikwu hence the call for him to resign.

“Kachikwu’s chameleonic pronouncements on the fuel situation over the past  months have left many Nigerians befuddled.”

“We wonder why ordinary Nigerians would be made to bear the brunt of the crimes of economic saboteurs, whom government with all its might is not  ready to deal with,” Zikirullahi added.
