0 24

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), on Thursday evening, refuted reports published by some sections of the media, stating that it’s Group Man­agement Director, Dr Ibe Kachikwu has been re­placed.

Online media had on Thursday, re­ported that Kachikwu who also dou­bles as the Minister of State Petroleum has been replaced by a Group Executive Director of the corporation, Maikanti Baru.

The report had read, “The President Muham­madu Buhari-led admin­istration has replaced Dr Ibe Kachikwu as the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

“Kachikwu may have been removed from the post to pave way for him to face the state duties, es­pecially in the wake of the unending fuel crisis in the country”.
