No Stolen 107million Barrels Of Crude Oil Under Kyari – Youth Alliance
……..The call for GMD NNPC’s dismissal was described as unfounded.
The Integrity Youth Alliance has said that there is no stolen 107 million barrels of crude oil under Mele Kyari’s management and therefore condemned the call for the sack of the Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC), Mal. Mele Kyari.
In a release on Thursday, March 17, 2022, signed by the National Coordinator of the Integrity Youth Alliance, Kelvin Adegbenga, said that the Niger Delta Congress should go into further investigation rather than release a blackmail press statement to the media.
It is on record that since the appointment of Mal Mele Kyari, he has anchored his agenda, entitled “Roadmap to Global Excellence” to Transparency, Accountability, and Performance Excellence (TAPE).
The statement read, “In line with his promise, Kyari has introduced the programme, popularly known as Transparency, Accountability, and Performance Excellence (TAPE), which involves the opening up of the books of the corporation in a way no other GMD has done before.
“Therefore, there is no way 107 million barrels of crude oil could have been stolen under the management of Mal Mele Kolo Kyari. “
Mal Mele Kolo Kyari has never shifted away from his Transparency, Accountability and Performance Excellence (TAPE) and this has made the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited open its books monthly to Nigerians for transparency and accountability, the statement said.
We therefore call on the Niger Delta Congress to channel their energy to eradicating illegal refineries and bunkering in the Niger Delta Zone instead of raising false press statements about the integrity of the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, the statement concluded.
Recall that, according to news reports contained in the OAuGF 2019 audit report of the NNPC, it claims the level of crude oil theft going on at the NNPC and the Ministry of Petroleum Resources is over 100,000,000 (one hundred million) barrels of crude oil unaccounted for by the company in 2019.
