Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu did not meet President Muhammadu Buhari in person during his much-reported visit to the Presidential Villa in Abuja last Friday, SaharaReporters has revealed.
The report further stated that Mr. Kachikwu only met Buhari’s State House Chief of Protocol, who reportedly handed some documents to the Minister relating to an investigation involving his brother, Dumebi Kachikwu, and a woman named Simbo Ayinde.
Giving more incident, a presidency source told Sahara Reporters that if Buhari met Kachikwu, photographs would have been released to that effect, asked that there might be photos our source noted if any photographs existed it was just possibly a photo op to fool Nigerians that any solid meeting took place between Buhari and troubled Kachikwu.
According to the documents, Ms. Ayinde reportedly wired funds into Dumebi’s account in 2015 during the Minister’s tenure as the Group Managing Director of Nigeria’s National Petroleum Corporation.
An EFCC report describing that transaction in detail had been available to President Buhari, who reportedly met the Minister over the scam, with Mr. Kachikwu flatly denying any involvement.
SaharaReporters further reported that the National Crime Agency of the United Kingdom recently indicated an interest in quizzing Kachikwu over the bribes which had been paid into his brother’s account after they reportedly found that the younger Kachikuwu funneled those funds to the Minister’s credit card accounts.
The report further revealed that President Buhari was planning to fire Kachikwu, but was restrained because of the Minister’s role in helping to calm Niger Delta militants who were at the time blowing up pipelines.
