The presidency is concerned over the failure of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited to fulfill milestones critical to the goals of President Bola Tinubu’s administration, TheCable understands.

According to insiders, Hadiza Bala Usman, special adviser to Tinubu on policy and coordination and head of the central results delivery coordination unit (CRDCU), expressed these concerns during a review of the quarterly performance assessment of the ministry of petroleum resources (oil).

Usman said the government is worried about key uncompleted projects by NNPC, a source told TheCable.

Specifically, the government official said the NNPC has continued to delay the completion of state-owned refineries — including the Port Harcourt refinery.

This, according to Usman, followed the “mechanical completion” of the rehabilitation work on a section of the refinery on December 21, 2023 — with assurance that operations would commence after the Christmas break.

The NNPC shifted the commencement of operations to April 2024 — of which Usman noted that there has not been any update on whether production at the refinery would commence this month, the source said.

Usman was said to have stressed that the endless changes in timelines for the commencement of production at the refinery was concerning to the government and Nigerians.

“This continued shifting in timelines is eroding the confidence of Nigerians in the government, and as an administration, we cannot allow that,” Usman was quoted as saying.

“This is why Mr President mandated the CRCDU to track the deliverables and performances of all MDAs, and we have no option but to identify and engage the Ministry of Petroleum NNPC Ltd on the situation at hand.”

According to the source, Usman also said the rehabilitation of the refinery was meant to bring the facility to optimal capacity for production rather than “attain tokenistic and marginal production milestones”.

Furthermore, she expressed worry about the decline in crude oil production from 1.351 million barrels per day (mbpd) in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2023 to 1.265 million bpd in the first quarter (Q1) of 2024.

In addition, the source said the government official emphasised the need for the NNPC and the security agencies to work together to improve daily production and achieve the government’s target of 1.65mbpd for the second half of 2024.

She also identified the importance of ramping up efforts to expedite the speedy completion of the Obiafu-Obrikom-Oben (OB3) gas pipeline project, which has been lingering.

Usman, it was learnt, said the CRDCU would employ the support of all stakeholders to ensure that the NNPC delivers on its performance indicators as directed by the president.

I doubt they fully comprehend the extent of the problems that make Port Harcourt Refinery non-operational, and think they will just say "let there be refined petrol in April", and miraculously there would be refined petroleum in April.

I guess there's next April though in 2025, or 26, or 27, or 3028 even.

Hmm...

When sane and patriotic Nigerians asked questions about the delay, shifting deadlines and Deceptions, state sponsored miscreants turned it into an ethnic and political fracas.

Government needs to be put on thier toes to perform.

Anyway, I am sure some clown would soon tell us to find a piece of land within our compound and start drilling and refining our own oil instead of waiting on Government.

Seriously can a lion start eating grass as food?
If that is possible then Tinubu is going to perform.
Lagos politics of je kin je is not working at the national level.

Buhari lacked ideas and used loan to finish us.
Tinubu is towing that path.

Why not stop corruption? He cant because a thief does not tell another thief how to steal.

Nigerians are the most gullible people on earth.

NNPC cabals that are throwing their face away from giving Dangote refinery crude oil are the same NNPC that you people believe will fix any refinery in Nigeria.

Nigeria as a country deserve to continue to suffer forever

Nigeria is run aground. Our future is destroyed. Bbn will soon come to distract our youths. Our leaders r just there to steal, loot,drain d country of every resource. The northern masses blinded by religion; the southern? Tribalism. But one day the poor masses will consume the elite literally and metaphorically. I pray its in our lifetime

All the money they borrowed and looted, do u know how it's paid back?
They pay with our crude oil, that's why we dont have crude oil for dangote to refine, he imports his own, all these foreign miner u se in Nigeria are mining our resources cos of the money ur government borrowed and looted,
Dont expect fuel to come down cos I hear they want to borrow more,
We need to deal with this government
Enough is enough

They didn't comprehend, but Buhari and APC govt drew down $1.5bn from the nation's coffers and paid100% in advance .

Nigerians don't have confidence in the government, so there's nothing to erode.
