Senate to probe Kachikwu’s allegations of insubordination against NNPC GMD Karu


The Senate is to investigate allegations raised by Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu against NNPC Group Managing Director, Maikanti Baru over allegations of insubordination.

Senator Kabiru Marafa moved a motion on the issue and the prayer was amended by Senator Samuel Anyanwu during plenary on Wednesday..

Aliyu Wamakko heads the nine-day ad-hoc committee. No time frame was given to the committee by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

In a letter leaked to the public, Kachikwu accused Baru of “completely eroding” some of the reforms he introduced as head of the NNPC.

The Minister stated that the oil firm announced a massive shakeup affecting 55 staff and to his surprise, the NNPC Board which he chairs, had no input.
