Trial Of Those Who Misappropriated NNPC Revenues Will Begin Soon – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday in New
York restated his determination to fully sanitize
Nigeria’s oil industry and make it totally free of
corruption and shady deals.
Speaking at a meeting with President Xi Jinping on
the sidelines of the 70th General Assembly of the
United Nations, President Buhari said that a
necessary first step in this direction had already
been taken with the appointment of a new
management for the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) and its subsequent
reorganization.
The President said that the prosecution of those
who misappropriated the NNPC’s revenue under
past administrations will soon commence.
President Buhari thanked President Xi Jinping for
China’s ongoing help in curbing crude oil theft
from Nigeria. The President applauded China’s
interception of shiploads of crude oil stolen from
Nigeria, and which were to be sold and proceeds
paid into private accounts.
“We know your stand on corruption, and we are
grateful.
Your continued cooperation in curbing oil theft
from Nigeria will be appreciated,” President Buhari
told the Chinese leader. He also assured President
Xi Jinping that under its new leadership, the
Nigerian military had been re-trained and re-
equipped, and was now making steady gains
against Boko Haram.
President Jinping told President Buhari that China,
which is already involved in Nigeria in diverse
areas like railway, airports, agriculture, and in the
Mambilla Hydro-power project, among others, will
increase its investment in the country’s agricultural
sector to support the achievement of domestic food
security.
He also promised further Chinese investment in
Nigeria’s oil and gas industry, and more support for
human capital development in the country. Femi
