Kachikwu Denies Graduating With First Class

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has denied  report he claimed to be  first class graduate of law from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN).

He said  while he was the best graduating student from the law faculty of the school in 1978, the school had no first class graduate of law in that year.
Responding to claims by an online publication that he lied about graduating with first class in law from the UNN, the ministry of petroleum resources in a statement signed by its Director of Press, Mr. Idang Alibi, in Abuja, said the claims against Kachikwu were untrue.
It equally noted that the publication’s reference to Kachikwu’s remarks at a church event in Abuja was done out of context, because according to the ministry, that was not what he meant when he advised young people at the church meeting.
“The aim of this response is to set the records straight and to establish that the Honourable Minister of State, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, neither misrepresented facts nor made the claims written in the publication.
“The official CV and resume of the Honourable Minister of State is in the public domain and has been submitted to various levels of government and parastatals. Dr. Kachikwu obtained a “Second Class Honours (Upper Division) degree” from the Faculty of Law in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka where he graduated as best student in 1978.
