Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum, says he will not resign as he still he has a lot of work to do.

The minister said this on Tuesday as part of his closing remarks while briefing the senate committee on petroleum (upstream) on the lingering scarcity of petroleum products across the country.

Different groups, including the South South All Progressives Congress, National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and some civil society organisations had called for the minister’s resignation, following his comment on the fuel scarcity that “one of the training​s I did not receive is that of a magician, but I am working very hard to ensure some of these issues go away.”

“All those planning to come to Abuja for a protest should save their fuel, I am not going to resign, I have a lot of work to do.”

Kachikwu said he did not accept to be minister of petroleum in order to create scarcity.

The minister promised he would work hard to find lasting solutions to the problems in the industry.

Kachikwu said he was pained that Nigerians suffer petroleum scarcity in spite of the country being one of the largest producers of crude oil in the world.
