TheCable reports that the president was shocked that he had to read a letter purportedly addressed to him in the media.

President Buhari allegedly felt that the letter was leaked in the media to embarrass him as he is the minister of petroleum.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that the controversy caused by the letter may have taken a different turn as the presidency is considering taking actions against the minister having cleared the NNPC boss of any infraction.

There are reports that Kachikwu in the current administration is unsure following the allegation he made against the NNPC GMD, Maikanti Baru.

President Buhari is considering taking punitive actions against Kachikwu after having found Baru not guilty of corrupt practices in the unilateral award of the $25bn contracts on Monday night, October 9.
