‘NNPC to reply Kachikwu’s contract scam allegations’

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) will on Monday respond the allegations levelled against its Group Managing Director Maikanti Baru by the Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, Daily Trust reports.

According to Daily Trust, a senior NNPC official said the corporation has gotten the permission to respond to the allegations.

Kachikwu in his letter to the president accused the NNPC boss of insubordination and award of $25bn contracts without due process, among others.

“This means that the NNPC tenders board guides procurement matters that if need be are cleared with the Petroleum Minister who is also the President of the Federal Republic,” the source said, adding that as former GMD, Kachikwu should have known better.
