The Federal Government has named Nigerian billionaire, Mike Adenuga, through his company, Conoil Plc, as one of those behind the fuel scarcity being experienced in Abuja.
According to Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, other companies instigating the fuel crisis include Eterna Oil, whose directors are Mahmud Tukur, son of Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman and Fola Adeola, the Vice Presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria in the last presidential elections; and MRS Oil and Gas, believed to be owned by businessman Sayyu Dantata.
According to Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala:
- “It is clear that those behind the strikes are marketers being investigated for possible fraud. These elements have now resorted to hiding behind the unions to unnecessarily antagonize Government and create hardship for Nigerians.”
CONoil… Makes sense, don’t y’all think…
