Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources has denied saying that he graduated with First Class from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN.
In a statement in Abuja, Director of Press in the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Mr. Idang Alibi, said; “At no time did Kachikwu claimed that he graduated with a First Class from the UNN.”
“The minister graduated from the school with a ‘Second Class Honours (Upper Division) degree’ from the Faculty of Law of the institution in 1978, and also emerged the best student.”
“Kachikwu’s Wikipedia page had been tampered with recently, by unknown persons and might have been re-edited for sinister purposes.”
“The assertions in the publication are wrong and baseless and a careful check with the Ministry of Petroleum Resources would have cleared this misrepresentation. By every measurement index, The Honorable Minister has performed outstandingly in his school work and has records to show for it.”
