‘You’re too good for this mess’… How Twitter reacted to Kachikwu’s memo

The leaked internal memo written by Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum resources, to President Muhammadu Buhari, is still generating heated conversations among Nigerians on the social media.



    According to the memo dated August 30, Kachikwu had complained bitterly about the unprofessional attitude of Maikanti Baru, Group Managing Director of the NNPC, as well as how he (Kachikwu) was being sidelined in the running of of NNPC’s activities.

    It is yet unclear how the memo got leaked to the press but Nigerians care less and have taken to Twitter to express their opinion on the matter.

    As usual, some of the expressions were comical, with one particularly suggesting that Buhari may not even read the memo, and another saying Kachikwu was too good for the mess he was instigating. One even advised him to turn in his resignation.

    Here are a few of the interesting comments:
