Lagos - Supporters of Petroleum Minister, Dr Ibe
Kachikwu, have alleged a media propaganda to have the minister sacked in the
wake of renewed militancy in the Niger Delta.
The said propaganda reportedly emanates from infighting with
the ruling All Progressives Congress in the Delta State.
Some media have reported the minister had been “insincere”
hence the spate of attacks on oil installations in the volatile region.
A leading publication, name withheld, has come under fire
for the allegations.
“The publication is sponsored to destroy the minister's
image and possibly facilitate his sack. It will never yield the desired
results,” the Rescue Delta Media Group.

The organisation is aligned to the All Progressives Congress
in the Delta State.
Spokesperson, Fred Oghenesivbe, alleged a plot against
Kachikwu since his nomination for the ministerial position.
He said a development angered some key players in Delta APC.
“It is unfair for this cabal to hate Kachikwu to the extent
of initiating malicious publications to assassinate his character and person.”
Oghenesivbe urged the general public and the Presidency to
ignore the said publication because it lacked” merit, a display of falsehood
and laced with evil nutrients of dirty politics.”
“The publication is the voice of Esau and the hand of Jacob.
It is evil, undemocratic and a political strategy to scheme out Ibe Kachikwu
from playing leadership roles in Delta APC.”
