The Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has promised to transform Nigeria’s oil sector in 365 days.

He gave the assurance on Saturday when All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in Delta State, led by Mr Jones Erue, the party chairman, visited him at his country home in Onicha-Ugbo, Aniocha North Local Government Area.

“The country’s oil sector will experience a turnaround such that the refineries will work effectively and products will be made available to the people at an affordable price within 365 days,” he said.

The minister, went further by saying he would welcome ideas from other Nigerians, since his knowledge may not be all-in-all.

“I came in as a technocrat to give my best to transform the oil industry, but I will welcome ideas from willing and capable Nigerians to build this sector,” he said.

However, Kachikwu advised the APC to carry others along and give them opportunity to make contributions for the development the country.
