‘Pipeline Used In Crude Oil Theft Created Under Jonathan’s Administration – Keyamo’

The spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo has blamed former Goodluck Jonathan’s administration for oil theft in Nigeria.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment on Friday said the recent discovery of oil theft in the country started under Jonathan’s government.

Keyamo made this claim while speaking during an interview on Channels TV on Friday evening.

The minister when asked to explain why crude oil was stolen under the APC administration, he claimed that the pipeline used for the illegal act was created by Jonathan’s administration.

Keyamo said, “This recent discovery of the pipe that they laid to steal crude oil, they said it was established 9 years ago and we are just out of astuteness and activeness we just discovered that pipeline now. So, who was in government nine years ago when that pipeline was established?”

There was a recent discovery of oil theft gulping about 73 million barrels annually due to pipeline vandalism and other crude oil criminal activities.

Investigations revealed that the country loses $7.3 billion on yearly basis to oil thieves and vandals.
