Nigeria’s Minister of state for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu has revealed he loses at least $1 million yearly for choosing to serve in President Buhari’s cabinet.
In his words; “The call to public service for me was unique. I was vice-president of Exxon Mobil West Africa and I was suddenly called to serve.”
“In serving, I lose a lot of money, if not at least a million dollars every year by virtue of being a minister, but the thing is, I am directed by the voice of God.”
“I believe that this country needs help. I believe that it is about time we began to perform for the young and upcoming. I believe that the sheer capacity of this country is unimaginable.”
Here are some reactions to his statement
Losing $1m yearly. I swear I believe Ibe Kachikwu, unlike all those PDP thugs that plundered this nation.

Ibe Kachikwu is fortunate to have enjoyed FG scholarships as well as Harvard University scholarship 4 his PhD in Law. He’s only paying back.
