Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum resources, refused to speak with reporters at the end of a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Dressed in a black suit, the minister arrived the presidential villa around 11:35 am and walked straight into the president’s office.

He left after over an hour. Asked what the meeting was about, Kachikwu said: “No comment.”

Maikanti Baru, group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), also met with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

Like Kachikwu, Baru also did not speak with state house correspondents.

The meetings took place three days after a letter which Kachikwu wrote against Baru was made public.

In the letter, Kachikwu accused Baru of insubordination. He also alleged that the NNPC GMD approved a $25 billion contract without following due process.

The letter has been generating some reactions.
