$25b: NNPC’s probe likely as Buhari meets Kachikwu


The President will today meet Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, it was learnt last night.

The minister has alleged that $25billion contracts have been wrongly awarded by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Group Managing Director Dr. Maikanti Baru.

Kachikwu wrote President Muhammadu Buhari on the “bravado management style” employed by Baru as a result of which he has sidelined the minister and the board of the NNPC on matters they should take decisions on.

Baru remained silent on the allegations yesterday.
