Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and former Senator, Shehu Sani have cautioned Nigerians insinuating that the newly appointed Group Managing Director (GMD) of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari is related to Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

This is coming after President Buhari appointed Mele Kyari to take over from Abubakar Baru effective July 8.

Fani-Kayode said:

We must be factual in our criticism otherwise it erodes our credibility. It is NOT true to say that Mele Kyari, the new GMD of NNPC, is a relative of Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to @MBuhari. I have know Abba for 40 yrs and I assure you that Mele is not a member of his family.

Sani Said:

Not every Kya is ri please.

However, Nigeians are still persimistic on his emerence as the new GMD.Check out these tweets
