Capital Oil Accuses NNPC of Consistent Breach of Contract.  Seeks account reconciliation with corporation. Thisday Online

Capital Oil and Gas Limited has accused the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) of consistent breach of contractual agreement, saying the allegation by the corporation that it could not access over 100 million litres of petrol stored in the company’s depot was a calculated attempt to stifle and strangulate the private company.


The company said in a statement on Sunday that it had earlier reported this act of strangulation to the Senate in a petition against the NNPC, which was read on the floor of the Senate on March 8, 2017, adding that it had also submitted a similar petition against the NNPC to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as well as the Department of State Services (DSS).


Capital Oil has also called for account reconciliation with the NNPC, stressing that the corporation is indebted to it for services rendered to it at very critical periods to salvage nationwide fuel scarcity since 2015, which amounted to millions of dollars and billions of naira.  Read more
