|Mohammed Kawu Baru|
|Dr. Maikanti Baru|
It is absolutely not the best of times for the Group Managing Director (GMD) of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru. It's like all he holds dear, are been torn apart and taken from him one after the other. And the anguish of the losses, are most definitely too much for only one person to bear.
Imagine just one person being hit left, right and centre by the cold hands of death, all in the space of just 2 months!!! First in the month of April of 2017, he lost his mother who resides in Misau, Bauchi State to death, while still bemoaning his fate, another sad news slipped in to jolt him again, when he lost his sister while preparing for the annual oil and gas conference known as OTC in Houston, Texas, then still not ending at that, just on Thursday, what could break any man occurred. He lost his 18 year old son, Mohammed Kawu Baru, a 1st year architecture major of the American University in Sharjah, who had collapsed and gave up the ghost, while on a school organised hiking exercise at Fujairah.
The brilliant boy has since been buried at the Sharjah Emirates Cemetery.
May all the dearly departed would make Aljanah.
