The former minister of education, Obiageli Ezekwesili 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.

Here are here tweets:

I hope the FG @NGRPresident @MBuhari 's government does not plan on "moving on". Governance is not about "personal beefs" &"reconciliation".

The weighty Breach of PROCUREMENT LAW raised in @IbeKachikwu against GMD
@NNPCgroup is NOT the kind of ISSUE a serious FG GLOSSES OVER.

The CREDIBILITY of Pres @MBuhari 's anti-corruption agenda suffers deeper lethal BLOW if this gets buried like the #GrassCutterAllegations .

As I did my weekend reading, I saw pictures of Nigerians applauding that @NNPCgroup GMD & his minister, @IbeKachikwu "have reconciled".

I turned to my husband&said, "God save us from gullible citizens!". What does "reconcile" mean to CITIZENS who're VICTIMS of Bad Governance?

This is my Voice to say, good that @IbeKachikwu & his GMD @NNPCgroup have become friends again. NOW LET THE BREACH RAISED BE PROBED SWIFTLY.

I had raised my Voice on the issue and advised an Independent Review of the Mis-Procurement allegations. Can WE KNOW @MBuhari 's FG ACTION?
— Oby Ezekwesili (@obyezeks) October 16, 2017

So, here is my counsel to Pres @MBuhari , HASTEN PROBE of the @NNPCgroup BREACH, PUBLISH Report & ACT SWIFTLY on its RECOMMENDATIONS. #DoIt ✍🏽

However, Kachikwu has denied the presence of fraud in the award of contracts by the NNPC, saying his letter was on governance.
The presidency has also said there is no such thing as the award of $25 billion worth of oil contracts by the NNPC.
