Letter to Buhari on Baru Borders on Governance Not Fraud – Kachikwu

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has said the letter he wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari over the insubordination of the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Maikanti Baru, was an administrative procedure and not indictment as the public was made to believe.
He revealed this while speaking for the first time the response of President Muhammadu Buhari to the controversial memo on Baru.
It would be recalled that the minister’s memo raised issues over the conduct of the NNPC GMD on contracts and appointments.
Kachikwu, who spoke in Owerri, Imo State at the end of a three-day Nigerian Content Workshop organised by the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, said the content of his letter did not border on fraud but on governance.
He said, “The conversation has been largely misunderstood to bother on fraud. It was not on fraud, but on governance and suggestions on ways to go about it. I think a lot of people got it wrong.
“People dwell much on issues of sensationalism and leave the main substance. The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, and I are working together as Mr. President had directed to move forward.
“Mr. President has urged the two of us to find ways of working together to remove doubt and rift.” He added, “Mr. President is a decent man and what he wants to achieve in this country is to live a legacy for posterity. He is a sincere leader, so nobody should accuse him of engaging in fraud.”
