IBE Kachikwu, minister of State for Petroleum Resources, is currently meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He arrived the Villa at about 11:35am and walked straight to the President’s office, looking unperturbed over the controversies that arose from his letter to the presidency.
He was dressed in black suit and was not accompanied by anybody.
Kachikwu had been in the eye of the storm over a letter he wrote the President in which he alleged gross insubordination by the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru.
He had alleged that Baru using the NNPC awarded $25billion contract without following due process.
He had also alleged that the $25billion contract was struck without consulting the office of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources or the board of the corporation. – Independent
