NNPC lied against us, we owe FG nothing

The Executive Secretary of Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association (DAPPMA), Olufemi Adewole, on Thursday said the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) lied when it said members of the association owed the government-owned oil firm N26.7bn. According to Adewole, members of DAPPMA had, in the past one month, paid over N90bn for petrol supply but had yet to receive any cargo from the Petroleum Products Marketing Company, a subsidiary of NNPC.

The NNPC had earlier attacked DAPPMA over a claim by the association that its members had no petrol in their various tanks despite NNPC’s claims of importing millions of litres of products. NNPC also stated that DAPPMA members owe it the sum of N26.7bn for products received from the corporation, adding that the statement credited to the association on the fuel supply situation, especially Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) was “very unfortunate.” But in his reply to NNPC’s claims, Adewole, via a statement issued to journalists, said it was unfortunate for the national oil firm to attack and accuse marketers falsely.
