Fuel Scarcity: President Buhari Summons NNPC GMD Baru

President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, over the lingering fuel scarcity across the country. The President met the NNPC boss on Saturday inside his official residence at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
