Contract allegation: Kachikwu keeps mum after meeting Buhari

Minister of State Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, did not disclose the outcome of his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari to State House correspondents on Friday.

The closed-door meeting, which was held inside the president’s office at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, lasted one hour and 10 minutes.

The minister arrived President Buhari’s office at 11.40am and left at 12:50pm.

The meeting was over Kachikwu’s allegations of insubordination and humiliation against the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Maikanti Baru.

Our correspondent reports that Kachikwu went into the meeting alone, but was thereafter accompanied out by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

When approached by the journalists for what transpired at the meeting, the minister exclaimed: “No comment!”

Kachikwu had alleged that the NNPC boss had repeatedly sidelined and disrespected the board of the national oil firm, which is chaired by the minister of state.

In a leaked letter, the minister had informed Buhari that against the rules, some over $25bn contracts were never reviewed or discussed with him or the board of NNPC.
