Jonathan Discovered Kachikwu To Replace Diezani– PDP

National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, said on Monday that it was immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan, and not President Muhammadu Buhari, who discovered the current Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu.

Metuh said Jonathan was preparing Kachikwu as a replacement for ex-petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, who headed the ministry till last May.

Metuh made the claims in a Channels Television discussion programme, SunriseDaily, monitored in Abuja.

The PDP spokesman, who was reacting to the decision of Buhari to supervise the Petroleum Ministsery, said that the NNPC helmsman was not a new discovery by the president.

Metuh said that the party would closely monitor Buhari as the minister of petroleum and would not hesitate to expose any wrongdoing in the oil industry under the president.

Metuh said: The PDP under Jonathan discovered the incumbent group managing director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), over two years ago.

“Ibe Kachikwu was supposed to be Minister of Petroleum under PDP two years ago; he is not a new discovery.

“If the President handles the petroleum industry and does anything dishonest, we will expose him and tell Nigerians,” Metuh said.”
