Kachikwu And Baru Meet And Broker Peace + Agree To Run NNPC Without Political Interference

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu; and Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, met on Tuesday for the first since their disagreement broke out and agreed on one thing – a petroleum industry regulator free from the vagaries of politics.

The two industry leaders met at a breakout session at the ongoing 23rd Nigerian Economic Summit and spoke on the controversial Petroleum Industry Bill.

Kachikwu said it was also important for the industry to have a minister who would not be very powerful as it was certain that no one would be a minister forever, adding that it was important that systems were built to drive the industry.

The minister moderated the panel discussion on energy at the breakout session of the summit alongside the NNPC GMD.

  1. 2 hypocrites. After baru said the board is redundant and does not have any say on who gets offer. Now i know that corruption will never leave this country.

    SHAME ON APC. Lets see if they will still use EFCC on other people.

  2. Talk is cheap.

    Your comment will be visible after approval

  3. So what will happen to the $25b contract awarded without due process? Or because it was done by a first class Nigerian?

  4. Once you're a northerner and an APC member, you can loot and do all manner evil activities and be given a soft landing!

  5. Yimmu........Corruption has won another battle.

  6. Well good for them cos in the long run both of them may be the losers
