Kachikwu and Baru at a recent gathering

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu and  Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr Maikanti Baru, who have been in the news lately for their letter writings, met  on Tuesday.

They  met in Abuja at the ongoing  Nigerian Economic Summit  at the Energy Policy Committee session.

The duo had been involved in controversies over alleged misapplication of funds at the NNPC, leading to the intervention of President Buhari.

Baru, who led a session, came‎ first at the venue of the programme, while Kachikwu walked in  some few minutes later.

As soon as the Minister of State entered, Baru stood up, approached him and exchanged pleasantries with him.

Kachikwu also suggested  that he be represented at the second session of the dialogue by Baru, a request the organisers declined, because Baru was to chair a session as it would affect his participation.

Kachikwu left while the breakout held and did not return  until  the end of the closing session.

Baru stood in for him as the Chairman of the session, and when he returned, he joined as the co-chairman.

At the end of the programme, they both exchanged pleasantries further, took some photographs, chatted and walked out of the hall t‎ogether.

On the opportunities in the Nigerian oil and gas industry, Kachikwu said the industry had enormous   potentials  evolving  on a daily basis.
