Senate Launches Probe of NNPC GMD Over Kachikwu's Allegations

Mr. Richards

President Muhammadu Buhari is now meeting with Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum.

The newsmen who accosted Kachikwu after he stepped out from the meeting only got a "No comment" reply when they asked him about the outcome of the meeting.

The senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to remove himself as the Minister of Petroleum Resources and appoint a successor that can be accountable for the nation's oil industry.

Baru was also accused of making appointments following the same pattern and trying to sabotage the successes recorded in the oil sector.

It was however obvious that the meeting with the president was as a result of the controversy now rocking the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Later, Lombardo said Danley is out of the country and that authorities would speak further with her when she returned to the U.S. He had devices attached to 12 semiautomatic rifles that allowed them to mimic fully automatic gunfire.

Nigerian Senate on Wednesday set up an ad-hoc committee to carry out "holistic investigation" into allegations of corruption against Maikanti Baru, the Group Managing Director, GMD, of the state oil firm, NNPC.‎.

Baru later joined Muslim faithful, including Buhari for the Juma'at service in a mosque inside the Presidential Villa.

The meeting with Buhari is coming three days after a memo from the Minister to the president leaked to the press.

He arrived the Villa at about 11:35am and walked straight to the President's office, looking unperturbed over the controversies that arose from his letter to the presidency.
