Kachikwu/Baru feud: PDP, SERAP call for suspension of Baru, Buhari meets minister today

President Muhammadu Buhari is set to hold a crucial meeting with the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja today.

This is the first one-on-one meeting Buhari will be having with the minister since a letter he wrote to the President on the conduct of the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, was made public.

It will also be the first time the minister will be meeting the President, Kachikwu had stated in the letter that he resorted to writing the letter after several unsuccessful attempts to meet the President personally since he returned to the country.

The minister accused Baru of insubordination and sidelining him and the board of the NNPC in the award of contracts as well as failing to follow due process.
