NNPC Denies Delaying 2013 Budget

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said it is not in any way causing delays in the passage of the 2013 budget as recently claimed by members of the House of Representatives, explaining that it has entirely cooperated with the legislators in the budget debate processes.
Reacting to claims by the Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Finance, Hon. Abdulmumni Jibrin, who had asked Nigerians to hold the corporation responsible for any delay in the passing of the country’s 2013 budget, the General Manager Media Relations of NNPC, Dr. Omar Farouk, said that the corporation could not have been responsible for any delay in the passage of the 2013 budget by the national assembly.
Omar explained that the corporation had severally honoured invitations for appearance from various relevant committees of the national assembly, in which it had made presentations and clarifications on its crude oil production and revenue projection plans, adding that Jibrin’s claims were unfounded.
