Mohammed gave this explanation while addressing State House Correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting, which was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo
IPMAN made its position known in a statement on Wednesday
Kachikwu said: “We have an obligation as a nation to continue to ensure that we follow through any part of the country with visible sign of oil at all.
The minister disclosed this at the Stakeholders Engagement and Enlightenment Campaign in Niger Delta states, organized by the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources, in collaboration with the Edo Government in Benin.
While speaking at the meeting, Perry commended Nigeria on the significant steps taken in the Oil and Gas Industry, and stated that the key message and thrust of the United States administration is to be strategic partners with Nigeria.
The investigative hearing had been scheduled for this week Tuesday by the Ad-hoc Committee mandated to look into the allegation
There can be no arguing that Nigerians have a right to deliver a verdict on Buhari at the coming polls, but certain forces, which he himself may not realise, are preparing to deal him the wrong hand
According to the online newspaper, Kachikwu was not at home when fire broke out
The position of the Presidency was contained in a statement by Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President
Osinbajo said this at the Nigeria and Entrepreneurship Summit and Honours Roundtable, with the theme: “Peace and Sustainable Development of Nigeria Oil and Gas Producing Areas”
Osinbajo made this clarification in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, in Abuja on Thursday
The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, had in a memo to President Muhammadu Buhari accused the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, of unilaterally awarding over $25 billion contracts without recourse to him or the Board of the corporation
The reason why Kachikwu is in tatters, while Baru is hiding under the formidable shadows of the President and his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, is because Buhari is involved. And that’s why when all is said and done, no NNPC Board, no Tenders Board, no FEC and, believe me, no National Assembly, can unravel the messy feud between Kachikwu and Baru
The oil giant faulted the Minister’s claim that he was not consulted on $10 billion Crude Term Contracts
Fayose described the allegation of the award of $25 billion contracts without following due process by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, against the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, as messy and an embarrassment to the country
The Association also vowed to resist any attempt by non-executive officials of the NNPC to meddle with the affairs of the Corporation
According to available information, Baru, on assumption of office, laid bare his commitment to consolidate the NNPC Group, especially its trading arm, for efficiency and profitability
They met in Abuja at the ongoing Nigerian Economic Summit at the Energy Policy Committee session
I say this for two reasons. When Dr. Ibe Kachikwu was appointed the GMD in charge of the NNPC and as Minister of State in 2015, it looked like a dream appointment and an extra-ordinary career point for him but not necessarily for the sector. Dr Kachikwu did not hesitate to assert himself and in his attempt to reform the NNPC, one of the victims was a certain Dr Maikanti Baru, most senior Executive Director at the NNPC, who was redeployed under the new dispensation as a Technical Adviser in the Ministry of Petroleum. This was like sending Baru to desert territory of the oil and gas sector. How the same Baru eventually got rehabilitated as GMD of the NNPC, to work with the same man who had tried to marginalize him within the system was a poor demonstration of an understanding of human psychology.
