Minister of state for Petroleum Resources Dr. Ibe Kachikwu said he will quit from the government if he fails to deliver on the promise to end fuel importation in Nigeria by 2019, Daily Trust reports.

Speaking in an interview on BBC World Service programme, HardTalk, on Monday, Kachikwu vowed he would deliver on the refineries and that he was committed to also deliver a future for oil that makes sense for Nigeria.

The minister said since he took office one-and-half years ago, he has been able to get the refineries back to begin to produce 7 million litres of petroleum product compared to zero previously.
