President Muhammadu Buhari, On Friday, held a closed-door meeting with the Minister of state for petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu at the presidential villa in Aso-rock.
The meeting is said to have lasted for over an hour and asked what the meeting was about, Kachikwu simply said "No comment".
The minister, according to the newspaper, alleged insubordination and brazen awards of the contracts by the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru.
Daily Trust reports that the president's meeting with the minister occurred around 11.40am.
Kachikwu who also presented five prayers to the President to save the oil sector from collapse said he was always being blocked from seeing the President.
Kachikwu had in the letter complained to Buhari on the conduct of Baru, and that several efforts to have audience with the president had yielded no fruit.
This came a day after the NNPC announced a massive shakeup which affected 55 management staff, and Kachikwu said neither he nor the board had any idea about the appointments, stressing that it wasn't the first time changes would be made without the board's input.
Anyanwu who is the chairman, senate committee on public petitions, ethics and privileges alleged that Baru was involved in huge corruption, accusing him of using a panama-based company, duke oil as sole importer of oil and gas into Nigeria even when it lacks the capacity and credentials to trade internationally.
So far, neither Baru or the NNPC has reacted to the allegations by Kachikwu, even as several groups and individuals have called on Buhari to suspend Baru, and ensure that the activities of the corporation are probed.
