The Group Managing Director of NNPC, Mele Kyari, dismissed the allegation as pedestrian and false.

it would be recalled that the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) had in a report submitted to the House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts accused the NNPC of failing to remit dividends paid into the NLNG dividend account.

He said: “I think it is just impossible not to remit money into the Federation Account. It is also impossible to withdraw any money illegally from any account of government. By the way, the NLNG accounts are Treasury Single Accounts (TSA) and domiciled with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

“It is practically impossible. We thought the accusation was very pedestrian and we didn’t bother to react to it because we know that it is impossible.”
