Militant to Kachikwu, “I dey go blow pipeline tomorrow”

Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources on Tuesday narrated how an alleged militant called him by telephone to inform him that he was going to blow some pipelines.

The Minister made the revelation while speaking at the federal government town hall meeting which took place in Kaduna.

“Last week, my phone number was published in Sahara Reporters and then I began to get millions of phone calls.”

“One of the first phone calls I took not knowing who was calling me was from a militant somewhere and when I picked up the phone, he said, ‘Are you the minister of petroleum’, I said yes.

“He said I dey go blow pipeline tomorrow, and I said why would you do that my brother if you love Nigerians? He said ‘are you sure you are the minister’, I said yes.

“Then he said for being so humble, I will drop the plan. That’s the kind of environment under which we operate.”

While also pleading with Nigerians to be patient with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Kachikwu said, “The reality of our situation is that wherever I turn when I was appointed, I had problems. If I turn to the refineries when I joined in October, they were not working. If I turned to the pipelines, they were non-existent.

“But I wasn’t discouraged, because if I had problems, what will I say of a man who at his age took over the mantle of this country? His Excellency, the president so that gave me a lot of encouragement,” he concluded.

  10. Is it wise to blow your father’s land?

  11. LET THE BASTARDS CONTINUE TO BLOW THE PIPELINES,,,, WHO CARES

  12. If there is a serious minded leadership in this country, why should every tom dick and harry have access to such sensitive places.
    How come people dont have the same access to the Central Bank? Silly leaders. Stupid followers!

  13. @shaibu na you go go send them for grave, your security are dere already,army,police,navy, civil defence,air force, all security forces nigeria have are dere now, including mai guards, open and closed gate ,,all of them fools biafraland to kill militant people, but God go strengths militant because dey are doing what God want

  14. And the effect of this action will gradually affect nigerians. Military actions can not solve internal security of these nature. Buhari must be an idiot to have fired the first shot by treatening to crush the militants, Bokoharam should have taught him some valuable lesson.

  15. @ Shaib Yaro and do you know the funny side of it,those clapping for them are there hiding in the corner of their rooms posting trash on social media leaving their so called brothers dieing in agony.

  16. Shaibu na foolish man. How come his master has not crush boko haram that was in existence before buhari enter power na militants that protecting there God giving resources buhari go crush. Let him come and crush them. Godbless Militants, at least you’re better than boko haram and fulani herdsmen who sucks innocent people’s blood at the same wanting to dominate another people’s ancestral land by force. Buhari should be thought a hard lesson he will never forgot till he die.

  17. This is not good for d country

  18. I think our President lack the quality of leadership sorry to say this but is true,this is not a military regime, the worst mistake our President ever made is to issue a threat to the avengers you don’t use violence to stop violence rather diplomacy is the best drug for violence, the boys are there to destroy and they have nothing to loose but the country do, let the President call their leader and know what their problems are is all about diplomacy, what Nigeria have lost in the hands of bokoharram this time i think the presidency should trade with caution.
