Former petroleum minister, Allison Diezani Madueke has been indicted by recent comments from the Indian High Commissioner.
Mrs Allison Diezani Madueke, former petroleum minister has been exposed by the Indian High Commissioner / Ambassador to Nigeria.
The High Commissioner, Ajjampur R. Ghanashyam, has exposed the shady deals that were undertaking by Allison Diezani.
According to a report by Daily Trust, the former petroleum minister failed to sign a long-term agreement with New Delhi, Nigeria’s Number One oil buyer, so as to indulge intermediaries in the annual $14 billion deal.
The High Commissioner also disclosed how the former petroleum minister made sure that oil deal between the two countries are paid to intermediaries and not directly to the government coffers.
From other countries, when we buy oil, whatever we want to pay, we pay to the Ministry of Finance of that country. In Nigeria, we pay to intermediaries. We would like to be dealing directly with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). It’s not a good thing. Why should we go through intermediaries? Secondly, we would also like to have long term agreement, which we have with many countries: Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and other countries from where we buy oil. Nigeria is the only country with whom we don’t have an agreement. .. When we write a letter to NNPC, we don’t get a response.
Ajjampur R. Ghanashyam also claimed that Indian paid several levies that were not reflected in the official books of the Allison Diezani led petroleum ministry.
