Peter Obi challenges FG to name ‘highly placed’ oil thieves, Boko Haram sponsors


The 2023 presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi has expressed sadness over the inability of the Federal Government to publicly name sponsors of terrorism and those stealing oil in the Niger-Delta.

Saga Gist recalls that the Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC, Mele Kyari, on Tuesday alleged that high placed Nigerians, including religious, community leaders and government officials, were fully involved in crude oil theft.

Reacting to the report, the former Anambra State governor, in a tweet on his Twitter handle, wondered why the FG is unable to summon the political will to name the criminal elements.

Peter Obi wrote, “I am struck and intrigued by the news report linking “highly placed” Nigerians to oil theft.

“Same has been the case with financing insurgency and Boko Haram. When will FGN summon the political will to publicly name such persons?”
