August 4, 2015 – Buhari Appoints Igbo Man As New NNPC GMD Group Managing Director, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu From Delta State

President Buhari may not be anti Igbo as most Ndigbo see him in this country.

Recall that a pan-Igbo group called Buhari anti-igbo last week for not giving appointments to Igbo people.

To prove them wrong, President Muhammadu Buhari has just appointed an Ndigbo by the name of Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu as the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

He was the ex-VC & General counsel to Exxon Mobil Africa.

According to Buhari’s to publicist, Femi Adesina, Dr Ibe hails from Onicha Ugbo area of Delta State.

He graduated with First Class law degree from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. He did his Masters and Doctorate Degrees in Law at Harvard Law School.

Congrats to him.
