After the meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, the minister has decided to remain silent after the meeting.

He had met behind closed doors with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Kachikwu, who arrived Aso Rock around 11.30a. m. left around 12:50 p.m

He simply said “No comment” when approached by journalists as he walked out of the President’s office with the Special Adviser to the President on Media and publicity, Femi Adesina.

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

His protest was contained in a letter to the President, which somehow got leaked to the public on Tuesday.

Apart from the Senate mandating its committee to probe the matter, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had demanded for Baru’s sack.
