Did Kyari Direct NNPC to Set Aside N50b from TSA? GMD of NNPC, Baru Addresses Media Reports

Did Kyari Direct NNPC to Set Aside N50b from TSA? GMD of NNPC, Baru Addresses Media Reports

The Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru has explained the non remittance of all NNPC's funds into the Single Treasury Account (TSA), stating that approval was from President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has disclaimed the allegation that its Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, had ever stated in any fora that the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, “directed the Corporation to keep the sum of N50billion away from the Treasury Single Account (TSA).”

NNPC wishes to state that the allegation is baseless, and is a clear misrepresentation of the truth.

An online publication made the allegation recently.

By virtue of the operations of the NNPC, the Corporation had made series of compelling cases to the Presidency and the Central Bank of Nigeria to allow certain categories of accounts operate outside the TSA, as they contain co-mingled funds governed by detailed agreements with local and international implications.

NNPC equally wishes to state that while these necessary approvals sought by the NNPC were graciously given by the Presidency, the Chief of Staff merely conveyed the notice of these approvals to the Corporation.

In the same vein, members of the relevant committee of the National Assembly have requested for copies of such approvals, which were duly provided by the Corporation.

To claim that the Chief of Staff single-handedly approved these exemptions was not only unfair, but is a complete misrepresentation of facts to mislead the general public.
