Nigeria's Minister of state for Petroleum Resources Dr. Ibe Kachikwu has said that he will quit from President Buhari-led government if he fails to deliver on the promise to end fuel importation in Nigeria by 2019.

In a BBC's HardTalk interview on Monday, Kachikwu promised he would deliver on the refineries and that he was committed to also deliver a future for oil that makes sense for Nigeria.

Asked by the programme anchor when Nigeria was going to be self-sufficient in terms of refining petroleum, the following conversation ensued:

Kachikwu: I have stated it, 2019 is the target.

BBC: You are running out of time because you know that we are near now.

Kachikwu: Don’t worry; I put the date, I will work it.

BBC: And if you don’t achieve it, you will walk (away)?

Kachikwu: Yes! Of course that is the reason why you are in government.

The minister said since he took office one-and-half year ago, he has been able to get the refineries back to begin to produce 7 million litres of petroleum product compared to zero previously.

“I have delivered on everything since I came to office. First, I took NNPC and moved them into a profit making organization first time in history and reshaped the organization. I removed cash call deficit of over $6bn, negotiated it. Everything that I have promised since coming into office, I have delivered. I will deliver on the refineries and I am committed to that and I will also deliver a future for oil that makes sense for Nigeria,” he said.
 
Dude has fashioned an exit strategy for himself.

Tiri Gbosa for you sah
The Dude hasn't fashioned his exit door but rather he's bringing into our polity a sense of commitment, high spirit of readiness to serve his fatherland.

He's just following the impeccable precedence laid down by minister of state for Aviation, Hadi Serika who promised to resign if the Abuja International airport is not reopened on 19th April, 2017( last for six weeks for its repairs) as promised.

Ending importation of petroleum into Nigeria altogether is not the same as completing Abuja airport tarmack.

Do u think he has no plans before making such weighty utterance?
There are plans to make modular refineries to augment the repaired refineries. Besides, Dangote's refinery would be commissioned by 2019 and it has been adjudged as one of the biggest in the continent.

I sincerely hope EIK's plans solve the problem but TIN. This is Nigeria. And 2019 is just 2 years away. EIK's going to encounter more obstacles than he imagined. This is Nigeria.
