I haven’t indicated interest in Delta gov race – Kachikwu

Council.

The minister described campaign posters indicating that he was running for the governorship of the state in 2019 as fake posters that he had no knowledge of.Alibi said, “Our attention has been drawn to fake campaign posters of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, for the 2019 governorship election in Delta State pasted by unknown persons across the Federal Capital Territory.“The office of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources hereby dissociates itself from the campaign posters which he has absolutely no knowledge of. The minister has not indicated any interest in running for any elective political office in Delta State.

“Kachikwu is focused on delivering on the reforms currently being implemented in the petroleum sector under the leadership of President (Muhammadu) Buhari and acting President (Yemi) Osinbajo in line with his duties as the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and the Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

 â€œHe remains committed to effectively representing his state of origin, Delta State, in the federal cabinet to institutionalise transparency, accountability and productivity in the Nigerian oil and gas sector.”

Kachikwu urged stakeholders in both the oil and gas sector and the general public to discountenance “these unfounded speculations.”
