Mele Kyari Alleges Threat To His Life Over NNPC Reform

The NNPC boss spoke at the Legislative Transparency and Accountability summit organized by the House of Representatives Committee on Anti-Corruption in Abuja on Wednesday.

Kyari, who said he was not deterred by the death threats, said the NNPC had taken down several illegal oil refineries affecting the volume of oil production in the country.

He said that as a result of the implementation of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA), a lot of changes are ongoing that affect the old order in the oil and gas industry.

The NNPC Boss noted that as a result of the activities and effects of the illegal refineries, daily crude oil production had been reduced by 700,000 barrels.

“Without mincing words, I want to say that this industry is on a threshold of change, there is massive change going on and it is very expensive and of a personal cost to many people including myself.

There is a threat to life, I can say this, I have several death threats but we are not bothered about this, we believe that no one dies unless it is his time.

But this is the cost of change. When people move away from what they are used to and are faced with something new that will take away value and benefit from them, they will react. That reaction is beneficial to all of us and we will work together to make sure it works out’‘ Kyari said.

KanyiDaily recalls that Mele Kyari said the NNPC, in collaboration with security agencies, has intensified the fight against oil theft by shutting down a significant number of illegal refineries in recent months.
