Senate Panel Chair Says Buhari Should Suspend Kachikwu And Baru...

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Upstream) Senator Tayo Alasoadura, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately suspend the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, and the Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru.





Alasoadura specifically stated that Baru’s continued presence at the NNPC could jeopardise the Senate investigation into the allegations that he allegedly approved contracts to the tune of $25bn without the approval of the corporation’s board.

The senator said this during a live programme on Channels Television titled, Sunday Politics.


When asked if they should be suspended, Alasoadura said, “I believe so; especially the man who is doing the day-to-day running of the organisation. In order not to hinder or hamper that investigation, because records will be needed and even from the date of the leakage of that letter, I think action should have been taken to ensure that nothing will be missing when investigations start

“So, I think the two of them should be asked to step aside and when investigation is over, whoever is culpable will go and whoever is not culpable, will continue with his duties.”

So the one that reported should be suspended too. Na wa.

Buhari's men doing the unthinkable and helping fighting corruption in their pockets.

Shame on all who continued stealing our national cake instead of sharing it round for everyone.

And why should Kachikwu be suspended biko? What is his crime? He reported an issue and you said he should be suspended. This Yoruba man is saying this out of fear, because no one in his right frame of mind should suggest this.

Some of our senators are so stupid. So now they want to tell the Executive arm how to run it's affairs?
Is it not the same NASS who said they cannot investigate a matter just because it appears on the pages of a newspaper, that it has to brought to them through a petition? Who has petitioned them in this case?
When their boss Saraki was in court, accused of corruption, was he not still attending and presiding over the Senate? Why did they not ask him to step aside? Idiots!
