Arewa Youths Call For NNPC Probe Over Shortfall In Remittances

Arewa Youths Call For NNPC Probe Over Shortfall In Remittances

By Deborah Musa, Abuja

Arewa Consultative Youths Movement (ACYM) on Tuesday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to look into the management of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) over the shortfall in its remittances to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The group, in a statement on Tuesday by its President, Kabiru Yusuf, called on Buhari to take the probe as a matter of national importance as the shortfall was capable of plunging the country into serious crisis if unchecked.

It said it was therefore important for the President to probe the matter with a view to ascertaining the causes and ensuring that things change for the better.

The statement read, “Arewa youths are indeed concerned about the widely reported shortfall in the remittances of the NNPC into the CBN coffers.

“It is our humble opinion that all those involved should be probed in order to ascertain if there was any under hand dealings that led to the situation.

“The President should not waste time in directing relevant persons or government agencies to probe the NNPC on this matter.

“There must be reasons why remittances can drop so sharply and Nigerians would like to know these reasons.

“We urge the President not to delay in commissioning this very important probe.”
