JUST IN!!! Kachikwu and Buhari in closed door meeting
President Muhammad Buhari and Ibe Kachikwu are understood to be behind closed doors for a meeting.

The reason for the meeting remains unknown at the moment but the likeliest remains the split between him and the Group Managing Director, GMD, of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru who he accused of insubordination.
The Minister of State had also accused Baru of not being transparent in the handling of affairs of NNPC contrary to the policy of the Buhari-led government that preaches transparency and due process.
