“Buhari has not seen Kachikwu because he sees all Southerners as slaves” - Femi Fani Kayode
Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, has said that the real reason the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, has not yet met with President Buhari is because he sees all southerners are slaves.
He wrote on Twitter: “Why is Ibe Kachikwu, the Min. of State for Petroleum Resources, surprised that he has not been granted access to @MBuhari and that the northern MD of NNPC is undermining him? Did he expect it to be any different? Has he forgotten he is Igbo? To Buhari ALL southerners are slaves.
“Ibe Kachikwu does not appreciate the fact that to @MBuhari and his tiny cabal of ethnic supremacists pillaging 26 billion USD from the Northern (sorry "Nigerian") National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is nothing.Where else do up expect him to get the funds for his 2019 campaign?”
The meeting between Mr. Kachikwu and the president has been scheduled for Friday at 11 a.m.
The meeting is coming three days after a memo sent by the minister to the president, complaining about insubordination and alleged corruption by the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Maikanti Baru, was leaked to the media.
In his letter dated August 30, 2017, Mr. Kachikwu urged the president to take urgent action to save the NNPC amid a N9 trillion contract controversy involving Mr. Baru.
Mr. Kachikwu said the contracts were awarded without following due process.
