A former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Obong Victor Attah, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to wade into the altercation between the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu and the GMD of NNPC, Dr Maikanti Baru.
Speaking to newsmen, Victor Attah said Buhari should cancel recent unilateral appointments made by Baru.
The former governor said the Baru sidelining of Dr Kachikwu only serves to paint the administration in bad light.
He said, ”It is individuals in government that are doing these things and bringing the government into disrepute.
”The President should order a cancellation. In this country, I am aware that the recruitment into the Nigeria Immigration Service NIS was canceled, so why can’t we cancel this one including that of the Department of State Service, DSS?
”The excuse was that they were trying to correct long years of marginalization but no one has been able to provide details with regards to that.
”This issue keeps recurring and people are thinking that Buhari is not fair to the rest of the country, but I do not believe this is true because it is individuals that are just trying to paint the administration in bad light.”
