Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has noted that the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, must be scrapped before it destroys the country. He insisted that “NNPC must die!”
The Governor, who made this assertion while speaking on Monday at the 7th Wole Soyinka Centre Media Lecture Series, lambasted the state oil company, stressing that he was optimistic that the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari would dissolve the entity.
The ex-FCT Minister went on to call 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 will kill Nigeria,” El-Rufai insisted.
