The Federal Government is moving up with plans to investigate the alleged involvement of Ghanaian companies in the stealing of the Nigerian crude.
President Muhammadu Buhari who dropped the hint on the possible involvement of Ghanaian companies in the stealing of crude oil from Nigeria during a recent visit to the fellow West African country said government had uncovered some Nigerian oil companies conniving with Ghanaian oil firms to steal crude oil from the country.
Addressing members of the Nigerian community in Ghana during his one-day state visit to the West African country, the President revealed that he had received reports that some oil companies in Ghana were bringing Nigerian crude oil into the Ghanaian system and vowed to deal with the perpetrators.
“We are going to pursue this information and find out if it is legally done. We will try to get to the bottom of it and prosecute the companies or those persons, who are involved,” he declared.
President of the All Nigerian Community, Mr. Moses Owarho commended Buhari for his tenacity of purpose in fostering good governance which was anchored on economic reconstruction and the restoration of the dignity of the nation.
