Tsav further claimed that an oil cartel within the oil industry was frustrating the government's attempts to address the issue.
He added that the dire situation would only start to improve once the high-ranking officials who were involved in corruption, were brought to task and prosecuted, in line with President Muhammadu Buhari's anti-graft war.
