After all, ambition, it is said, to be a great man’s madness, but IbeKachikwu, the Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, who wants to rule oil-rich Delta State begs to differ. He seeks to affect no madness, he only seeks to serve his people in Delta state in more appreciable capacities; at least his apologists said.As former Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and now Minister of State for the strategic ministry, Kachukwu is considered experienced enough and powerful enough to make impact. His international exposure as President of OPEC is considered an added advantage.These apart, sources said the minister has not done much to confirm interest in the governorship race in 2019. “He does not have visible and tangible political structure at the local government level to back up the so-called powerful support,” the source said.Although, speculations are rife that the billionaire minister could fall victim to political fraudsters by his bid, it would interest many analyst that Ibe is a shrewd individual; a pragmatist who never attempts extravagant spending of any kind. Feelers are that Odogwu as he is fondly called, is being very cautious and wary of political kingmakers of Delta State who may not be favourably disposed to his candidacy.
