The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has released a press statement concerning the alleged unauthorized disbursement of funds from NLNG dividend’s account.
It reads below.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has offered to provide details of the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Dividends Account from 1999 till date to give the Senate and the general public a comprehensive insight into the operations of the account.
Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, stated this at the hearing of Senate Committee on Gas which has been mandated to probe the alleged unauthorized disbursement from the account to support importation of petroleum products to avert scarcity.
The GMD who was represented by the corporation’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Mr. Isiaka Abdulrasaq, in his presentation at the hearing Thursday in Abuja, insisted that there was need to take a holistic look at the NLNG Dividends Account from inception rather than a limited view from 2015 as requested by the Senate Committee.
He said the corporation was ready to provide details of operations of the account in terms of revenues and withdrawal mandates form 1999 till date.
The GMD also informed that the fuel supply situation in the country was very robust with about 2.2 billion liters of fuel in stock, representing over 45-day sufficiency.
In his response, Chairman Senate Committee on Gas, Senator Bassey Akpan, said the committee’s terms of reference mandated it to look at the operations of the account from 2015 till date.
He, however, added that should the NNPC decide to provide details from 1999 till date, it was welcomed.
The Senate committee adjourned the hearing to 4th December, 2018, with a mandate to NNPC and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to provide the details of operations of the NLNG Dividend Account before the end of November.
