Oby Ezekwesili, former minister of education, is hoping President Muhammadu Buhari will not let the allegations of fraud against the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) be swept under the carpet.
She said this in reaction to the reconciliation of Maikanti Baru, group managing director of the oil firm, and Ibe Kachikwu, minister of state for petroleum resources.
She said the allegations raised are not one that “a serious government glosses over”, as this will according to her, deal a big blow on the anti-corruption war.
The ex-minister, therefore, asked Buhari to hasten the probe of the NNPC.
Ezekwesili spoke out via a series of tweets.
I turned to my husband&said, "God save us from gullible citizens!". What does "reconcile" mean to CITIZENS who're VICTIMS of Bad Governance?
