NNPC Ltd Disclaims Report On Alleged Inflated Subsidy Claims

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd.) debunked that report in a media section alleging that it inflated subsidy claims by N3.3 trillion.

According to a press release on Monday, 10th June 2024 signed by the Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Ltd., Abuja, Olufemi Soneye, said that NNPC Ltd. conducted its businesses accountably and transparently in keeping with international best practices and has, at no time, inflated its subsidy claims with the Federal Government.

“All previous subsidy claims by the Company are verifiable, as relevant records and documents have been sent to appropriate authorities and agencies, the statement said.

The statement read, “NNPC Ltd. is neither aware of any audit of its subsidy claims nor the probe ensuing from that place and wishes to state categorically that both ridiculous claims are products of the febrile imagination of the reporters and their respective media houses.

“NNPC Ltd. will resist any attempt to drag the Company into the apparent politics of fuel subsidy as it currently operates on a commercial basis and the express provisions of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA).

“It is on record that, in line with its Transparency, Accountability & Performance Excellence (TAPE) mantra, NNPC Ltd. has, on several occasions, independently invited external auditors to review its books.

“NNPC Ltd. calls on media practitioners and media houses to exercise restraint and verify information before publication in keeping with the ethics of the noble profession of journalism to avoid misleading the public.
