Lagos, Nigeria – The All Progressives’ Congress (APC), Presidential Campaign Council, (PCC), has on behalf of its flag-bearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, heartily commended the recent news that Nigeria has substantially restored its national oil production volumes to over 1.5m barrels per day.
The Campaign Council gave the commendation in a statement signed by its Director of Public Affairs and Chief Spokesperson, Festus Keyamo, and made available to journalists.
According to Keyamo, the success is a pointer to the historic and combined efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is also the Minister of Petroleum Resources, as well as the contributions of the security agencies, the NNPC and its partners.
The Minister of State, Labour and Employment also believes the feat is particularly appreciated in recognition of the ignoble role previous administrations had actively played in aiding and abetting illicit activities at great expense to the nation.
“We are equally enthused to note that we are expected to achieve 1.7m barrels per day production by the end of this year, which places our nation almost in full compliance with the OPEC quota.
“The excellent strides of the APC Administration in the oil sector shall be further expanded by our candidate, H.E. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Recall that Tinubu served for over a decade at the zenith of the international Oil & Gas Industry as a private citizen and is best placed to achieve his target of 2.6m barrels per day by 2027,” the Chief Spokesperson of the PCC said.
He further noted that Asiwaju seeks to achieve this through enhanced investments in the sector and active stakeholders’ engagement – a move he has already begun with the historic visit to Gbaramatu Kingdom in Delta State last week.
“We applaud President Buhari as he finishes strong in the sector and assure Nigerians of the preparedness of Asiwaju to take this to the next level.”
