Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Monday in Abuja radically called for the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to be aboloished and replace with a new one.
“NNPC must die!” he asserted with emphasis. He stressed further, “If you don’t kill NNPC, it kill Nigeria.”
A visibly angry El-Rufai, while speaking on Monday at the 7th Wole Soyinka Centre Media Lecture Series, lambasted the national oil firm, stressing that he was hopeful that the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari would kill the corporation.
The Kaduna State governor called for the setting up of another national oil firm as he argued that the present NNPC would kill Nigeria if it is allowed to continue running as the country’s oil firm.
“If you don’t kill NNPC, it kill Nigeria,” El-Rufai said.
