Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum resources, has revealed that he’s losing money because of his passion to serve Nigeria.
THE CABLE reports that speaking in Abuja on Sunday, Kachikwu said his former job was more rewarding financially.
He said, ”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. I do not know of any country in the world with our population, our resources, our intellect, our flamboyance, our family nexus, everything is together.”
