The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, yesterday said it wasn’t in any way financing the plot to impeach the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The NNPC in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, dissociated itself from partisan politics.
The statement signed by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, said the Corporation and its Group Managing Director, Maikanti Baru are not part of the ongoing political tango in the National Assembly.
“The report is not only false but also an affront on the verifiable reforms in the operations of the corporation under the remit of Dr. Baru which has witnessed irreversible strides in the area of transparency leading to the sustained publication of NNPC monthly operations and financial records.
“It is mere fiction and outright ‘tales by moonlight’ for anybody to insinuate that Dr. Baru or anybody else could just take a dip into the Corporation’s till and dole out the volume of funds being portrayed in that phantom report for political purpose.
“We call on all well-meaning members of the public and oil and gas industry stakeholders to discountenance the said story, as the management of the NNPC remains committed to its statutory role and responsibility to the entire federation.”
