|Suspend Baru & Kachukwu - YPP Chairman To President Buhari by barcitymedia: 2:47pm On Oct 12|
No doubt corruption has been the bane of our socio-economic and political development as a nation since independence with over $600billion estimated to have been looted from the nation’s treasury in the past five decades.
Nigerians overwhelmingly voted not for the All Peoples Congress (APC) but a man of strong character in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari who was perceived as a man of integrity with an undeniable capacity to halt the unabating rise in the acts of corruption which got to a nauseating proportion before the 2015 general elections. However, it is now obvious that what we need as a nation are strong institutions and not strong individuals.
The trend of events that have characterized this government since assumption of office over two years ago especially as it borders on the war against corruption shows that not much has changed thereby leaving more to be desired as the zest exhibited during campaigns before the 2015 general elections seemed to have fizzled out as soon as the APC won the Presidential election.
The ongoing allegation of corruption and gross abuse of office against the GMD of NNPC in the person of Dr. Maikanti Baru by the Hon. Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachukwu is one case too many and just like every other corruption cases before it such as the corruption allegation against the Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abba Kyari and the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir David Lawal will not be swept under the carpet thereby giving credence to the statement of Senator Shehu Sani that the President fights corruption with insecticide when it comes to others but uses deodorant when it comes to members of his executive.
While we have not entirely given up on the ability of the President to provide leadership especially in tackling this menace that has continued to constitute a clog in the wheel of our nation’s progress, the Young Progressive Party do hereby recommend in line with global governance best practices as follows:
1. The immediate suspension and investigation of the allegation and counter allegation of misappropriation and gross abuse of office against Dr. Maikanti Baru and Dr. Ibe Kachukwu in order to ascertain the level of culpability in the fraudulent award of contracts to the tune of $26billion dollars without following due process by the former and the probe of the later tenure as GMD NNPC.
2. The immediate appointment of a substantive Minister of Petroleum Resources who can effectively see to the day to day running of the Ministry and whom Nigerians can hold accountable for any breach of public trust.
3. The immediate implementation of the report submitted by the Presidential panel headed by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo set up to investigate the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir David Lawal and the Director General of the NIA, Mr. Ayo Oke.
4. The President Muhammadu Buhari administration should concentrate on building strong institutions that does not depend on any individual to fight corruption or drive good governance.
It is instructive that the above recommendations be strictly implemented in order for the present administration to gain back the confidence of majority of Nigerians who have come to see the ongoing anti-corruption war as selective and only targeted at anybody but members of the APC and the Executive.
Conclusively, we would like to congratulate the Super Eagles of Nigeria for qualifying for Russia 2018 against all odds and showing our leaders how to unite our people and that impossible is nothing if only we can shun our differences by uniting as a people in pursuit of a common goal of making Nigeria a better place not only for our generation but for generations yet unborn.

Suspend Kachukwu for what? For talking about the corruption and irregularities in the petroleum industry?
Baru is the culprit who should be forced to leave office.
|Re: Suspend Baru & Kachukwu - YPP Chairman To President Buhari by anytexy: 6:28pm On Oct 12|
PMB should as a matter of urgency resign as a minister of petroleum and appointment kachikwu or any other competent person as a substansive minister. Is Buhari the only honest person so to say in this Nation. Rubbish!

What is Dr Kachikwu's offence?
Fulani people, is it an offence to expose illegality in a government parastatal like the NNPC?[b/]
[b]Fellow Niger Deltans, our is being persecuted for exposing the massive corruption going on in the NNPC.
We are becoming docile and we are being taken for granted in the scheme of things nowadays.[b/]
[b]Buhari should not take our gentility for weakness.[b/]

We are watching let's see how things unfold but the truth is this Apc government just ended up shooting themselves @ the foot cause the alibi of corruption is pointing towards them coupled with the overwhelming evidences that they are actually thieves and kwarapt.
|Re: Suspend Baru & Kachukwu - YPP Chairman To President Buhari by Ebimor96: 7:01pm On Oct 12|
I bet you that if Dr Kachikwu is eventually suspended, there will be no more OIL for the Petroleum Ministry to supervise.

|Re: Suspend Baru & Kachukwu - YPP Chairman To President Buhari by UbanmeUdie: 8:21pm On Oct 12|
It is always a grievous pain in my heart when a finger of accusation is pointed in the wrong direction, and worse is the call for justice against the unconcerned.
What is Kachikwu's offense
The president has been grossly implicated as signing the purported contracts on his sick bed in London at a time when he had ceased functioning as the president of Nigeria.
That in itself is a Tsunami of a crime!
The YPP should be calling for Buhari's resignation if they actually mean business.
Mr. Baru however should not be allowed to escape the gallows.
Buhari was never a saint and will never be till he dies!
Mr. Integrity my foot!
You just can't win a changing game with same old tactics. The brain of that geriatric patient from Daura can't reason anything new.
|Re: Suspend Baru & Kachukwu - YPP Chairman To President Buhari by HottestFire: 8:33pm On Oct 12|
They should come out and declare boldly their intention instead of hiding under the disguise of asking for investigation.
Kachukwu didn't approve any contract, what then are you investigating him for?
Ok, for letting the cat out of the bag..
|Re: Suspend Baru & Kachukwu - YPP Chairman To President Buhari by eyeview: 9:18pm On Oct 12|
Why exactly should Ibe kachukwu be suspended? What did he do wrong? The man revealed a scandal and wicked and brainless people want him to resign or suspended. This party has just shown us the shallow reasoning level of it's leadership.
If there are two people who should be suspended and are heavily indicted in this it's The Minister of Petroleum himself which is Buhari and the GMD of NNPC, Baru. And both of them have been named in this fraudulent deal.
