President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, are now meeting behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Kachikwu simply said "no comment" when State House correspondents approached him.
Baru was also seen at the presidential villa mosque where he joined President Buhari for Jumaat service.
He said because of the demands of the presidential office, the president is obviously restricted in his supervisory role as the Minister of Petroleum, under whom Kachikwu functions as the Minister of State of Petroleum.
It was however obvious that the meeting with the president was as a result of the controversy now rocking the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
Dr. Kachikwu wrote a letter to the President three days ago, accusing the NNPC Group Managing Director of insubordination.
He told President Buhari that the country's petroleum industry would have recorded tremendous progress but for Baru's alleged inactions.
This came a day after the NNPC announced a massive shakeup which affected 55 management staff, and Kachikwu said neither he nor the board had any idea about the appointments, stressing that it wasn't the first time changes would be made without the board's input.
His protest was contained in a letter to the President, which somehow got leaked to the public on Tuesday.
