Petroleum Distribution: Senate Orders NNPC To Provide Details In Two Weeks


The Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream) has issued a two-week ultimatum to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to provide it with details of petroleum products distribution.
The committee also directed the NNPC Group Managing Director, Andrew Yakubu, to supply it with details of excess crude swap and the number of aircrafts in NNPC’s fleet.
The Chairman of the Committee, Senator Magnus Abe, issued the ultimatum o Thursday in Abuja following the failure of the Managing Director, Warri Refinery and Petrochemical Ltd, Mr Paul Obelle, to appear before it.
Obelle failed to honour an invitation to appear before the committee to explain the circumstances surrounding the fire that engulfed the petroleum plant on October 22.
Abe decried the attitude of government officials who allegedly showed disdain to lawmakers by failing to honour invitations to provide details of the operations of public organisations.
He, however, noted that the information required was important, saying that the NNPC needed more time to collate the
documents for the convenience of the committee.
“There are also issues to do with the implementation of the NNPC budget. We have also written to them to furnish us with all the details of the budget implementation as the year progresses.
“I would like to seize this opportunity to ask them and very seriously, call on NNPC and indeed, call on all government agencies that cooperating with the legislature is important for the stability of our democracy.
“So, I will plead with NNPC, to very quickly, within the next one week, assemble all the documents that we have asked for.
“This is more so particularly documents relating to the distribution of petroleum products and the crude-swap arrangement.
“So, we will give them time to collate their documents and also within two weeks, they should collate their documents within and outside Nigeria.
