OrderPaperToday– The Senate today summoned Minister of State for Petroleum, Mr Ibe Kachikwu, to appear before its Committee on Petroleum Downstream on Tuesday, over lingering fuel scarcity in Nigeria.

Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum Downstream, Jibrin Barau told newsmen that the summons became necessary following the hardship on Nigerians.

He revealed facts about the summons shortly after an on-the-spot assessment of fuel stations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Barau condemned the Ministry’s failed promises of bringing the sad situation under control.

“We have invited the Minister of State to appear before the Committee tomorrow to tell us about the fuel scarcity problem and the strategy he is employing to solve it.

“We will expect him to give a date when the problem will be resolved permanently; this is the course of action we have taken.

“We are not satisfied because this problem has gone unabated for too long; the situation is appalling and it is a major problem.

“We gave the ministry enough time and space to put its act together to solve this problem.”

Barau assured that the Senate would take a position on the matter after hearing from Ibe Kachikwu, who also doubles as the Group Managing Director, NNPC.

  4. Madaki who is not in this govt,from Buhari and his ministers? This a mis- placed govt,an illitrate infantry made president,who is not even qualify to be a dpo.

    • God I thank you for Buhari illitrare igbos wan kill themselves because Jonathan deceived them by saying he will give them presidency.I dey laugh mumu people.I no go use my hand vote enemies of Nigeria.

  5. Tinubu still talking as an opposition leader not knowing he is a leader of a party in power. Anywhere, Apc is used to blaiming others for their failures. Very soon he will blame jonathan for the scarcity.

  6. Zoo republic. They knw someone is der storing the fuel because they knw biafra is abt to stay. That is why fuel is not avaliable.

  7. FUEL SCARCITY IS PART THE CHANGE THEY PROMISED US. LET’S ENDURE THE CHANGE, EVERYTHING HAS TIME. NIGERIANS SHALL BE DECEIVED AGAIN WHEN THEY SHALL COME TO CANVASS AGAIN COME 2019.

  8. ILLEGALITY AND IMPUNITY IN BENUE STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY.

    Oju 11 state constituency demands to know why INEC letter to the speaker of Benue State House of Assembly voiding the certificate of return wrongly issued to Mr ire Matthew owuru has not been read in the floor of the house, or why Hon. Adegwu Mike Agi is not sworn in till today as stated in the letter and ordered by the appeal Court. By the status of that letter Ire ceases to be a member of BSHA even as he heads to supreme Court to challenge the appeal Court ruling of the 15-12-2015, in favour of Hon. Mike Adegwu Agi. The illegality cum the impunity of the speaker in favour of Ire was due to the forfeiture of Ire’s three bedroom flat at Gboko (in mechanic village) and some other huge amount offered for protection by the main OGA of the House. The speaker is a very young breed politician at his 30s that every youth admired, not until these heinous acts were discovered. Sadly, this is the same man that may need our votes in the nearest future. It quite pathetic that this is happening during the CHANGE era we all clamoured for, particularly in BENUE STATE with “IN GOD WE TRUST” APC slogan, thinking the reign of impunity, illegality and corruption are over. Reports has confirmed that it’s only in BENUE STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY that an illegal occupant of the house is entitled to all his benefits. While the legitimate occupant of the seat is being denied his rights all because he has no god fathers and money to buy his ways.

    Let’s the good people of Nigeria come to the aid of Hon. Adegwu Mike Agi. Because an Injustice to one is an injustice to All.

  9. Senate is not serious. Fuel scarcity is beyond kachikwu. Let them invite Buhari, the full minister of petroleum and president of Nigeria for explanation. It is simple.

  10. Our senators!Our major problem in nigeria!They are just decieving themselfs cuz they know it’s pmb they ought to invite
