Leaked Memo: What Ibe Kachikwu Said After Aso Rock Meeting with Buhari
 
Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, who met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja, rarely uttered a word to journalists after the meeting. The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu on Friday at the end of a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, refused to comment on what transpired.
 
Kachikwu, who wore black suit arrived the Villa at about 11:35am and around 12:50 p.m.
 
When approached by State House Correspondents as he walked out of the President’s office with the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina after the meeting, he simply said “No comment. ”
 
Kachikwu’s letter to the president in which he alleged gross insubordination by the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC) Maikanti Baru, was leaked to the media during the week.
 
He had alleged that Baru using the NNPC awarded $25 billion contract without following due process.
 
He had also alleged that the $25 billion contract was struck without consulting the office of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources or the board of the corporation.
