NNPC Exported $1Bn Crude Oil Without Records In Four Years --Auditor-General Alleges

The Auditor General of the Federation (AuGF) has alleged that the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited exported 17.877 million barrels of crude without proper documentation in four years.

In a report published on its website and obtained by Ripples Nigeria on Tuesday night, the AuGF revealed that the product valued at $1,020,969,281.12 was exported by NNPC between 2016 and 2020.

The AuGF also faulted the NNPC for appointing two Pre-Shipment Agents (PIAs) and one Monitoring and Evaluation Agent (MEA) in 2017 knowing fully well that President Muhammadu Buhari had canceled the appointments of all service providers two years earlier.
