The dinner was scheduled to hold at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, Tuesday night.
Dr. Baru had organised a “Special Dinner” for National Assembly members after it unveiled plans to investigate him following the Minister for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Kachikwu’s scathing revelation.
The event was initially slated for 7 p.m., and was strictly by invitation to all Senators and Members of the House of Representatives.
The invitation card of the dinner was signed by the Group General Manager, Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu.
A lot of hues and cries had followed the invitation given that Baru is due to appear before the Senate Adhoc Committee.
He was charged with gross misdemeanor over award of NNPC contracts to the staggering tune of $25 billion.
Senator Omotayo Alasoadura said the members of the Senate rejected the invitation after it was succeeded by a barrage of criticism by Nigerians.
Earlier, NNPC had explained through Twitter that the dinner had been postponed twice.
