Lukman was Nigeria’s best oil minister, says Atiku


ABUJA (SundiataPOST) – Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described Dr. Rilwan Lukman, who passed on Sunday night as the best oil minister Nigeria ever had.

The former Vice President made the revelation today in a statement issued by his media office in Abuja.

“I will describe (Rilwan) Lukman as the best oil minister we ever had given his unmatched knowledge of the industry and the integrity with which he ran the ministry,” the statement quoted Atiku as saying.

He recalled that Lukman’s contribution to the management of the nation’s oil and gas sector provided the impetus for his elevation as Secretary General of Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

Atiku described his death as a monumental loss and prayed that Allah will grant his family and the nation the fortitude to bear the loss.
