How True? Nigeria's Minister of State for Petroleum is A Daft

Written by Dr. Peregrino Brimah
No wonder why Nigerian government officials typically refrain from talking to Nigerians on the state of affairs; because when they do it is always an apology and more times than not, a national risk and disaster. Shutting up is their grace.

Minister of State for Petroleum, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu is an apology. He is a daft as captioned. Perhaps an idiot savant. I am not being harsh. When millions of Nigerians suffer due to his being a failure and absolute misfit for his job, then there can be no kinder words. Kachikwu is not fit to be a minister, and that's a fact. 

His own words, apart from the ones Tinubu pointed out and criticized him for, lay it bare.

Ibe Kachikwu said, "the government's strategy is that whatever produced in the refineries will not go for sale but will be kept "in strategic reserve because the key problem here is that there is no reserve; anytime there is a gap in supply, it goes off...So, we're going to dedicate the next couple of months to moving all the products that we produce to strategic reserve so that we can pile up reserves and that will push up the reserves in the nation."

This guy is really so daft! Making hay while the moon reflects. Can you beat that? He is building "strategic reserves" for continuity tomorrow by establishing a deadly break today! How clueless can a minister be? Strategic reserves are to ensure continuous flow. You do not stop supply to save reserves. You save reserves when supply is maintained and while maintaining supply.

Reserves are for the rainy days, you do not make rainy days and rainy months to make reserves!

Kachikwu is intentionally killing industry, businesses, patients and progress today to build reserves for a tomorrow that may never come for all and will never come for sure for those he has already killed with the artificial scarcity he has created today; what a dolt.

This is what happens when you pick the wrong people from the wrong places and for the wrong reasons to be your ministers. You pick some fake Elitists who have no idea about human behavior and the survival of the human species. With Ministers like "ultra-wicked Fashola (as the Senate correctly called him) and Ibe Kachikwu, Nigerians are dead. Dead now and dead tomorrow.
