The House of Representatives at Wednesday plenary called for the immediate investigation of the allocation of crude oil under the Direct Sale Direct Purchase (DSDP) Scheme.

In a motion moved by Hon. Makki Abubakar Yalleman -APC Jigawa who called the attention of the House to a news paper publication dated 14th February, 2021 noting that the publication was an eye opener of how the Country’s crude oil is being stolen.

Makki said the report in the publication showed that approximately 5.2 million barrels of crude supposedly allocated to comatose NNPC refineries in 2018 under Direct Sales Direct Purchase (DSDP) operations are unaccounted for. Essentially, almost half of the 10.9 million barrels of crude oil allocated for domestic supply between June 2018 and July 2019 as reported by NNPC is either stolen or diverted.

Worried at the spate of missing national revenue, Yalleman said;

“Unless these leakages are being plugged, they will deepen the national deficit even further thus drepriving the country of the much needed development.”

The house therefore referred the matter to the House committee on Petroleum Resources (downstream) for further legislative action.
