Abuja - The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said that there is no rift between the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, and the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Andrew Yakubu.
This is according to a statement issued by the NNPC. The statement said the minister and the GMD were in harmonious working relationship and dismissed insinuations of a frosty relationship between the two.
It said the minister and the NNPC in the last few months had heeded countless summonses from the National Assembly.
It denied that the minister was doing anything to thwart the proposed investigation into the alleged N10 billion purportedly spent on the charter of jets by the corporation.
The statement said the minister and the corporation were putting together all the documents that the National Assembly requested for in the matter and added that at the end of the probe the minister and the corporation would be vindicated.
It said that all agencies in the ministry were working in concert with other key downstream operators to ensure the realisation of the zero fuel queues aspiration of the minister.
