Subsidy: Reps Want NNPC, PPPRA, DPR Bosses Sacked

Except for possible last-minute upsets, about 100 members of the House of Representatives will tomorrow move a motion seeking the removal of the group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr Austen Oniwon, executive secretary of the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), Reginald Stanley; director of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Oluyemisi Olorunsola; and the managing director of Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), Mr. Haruna Momoh, pending the conclusion of investigation into their role in the management of fuel subsidy which has been characterised by irregularities.

The minister of petroleum resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, was also listed among those who should be removed or suspended. LEADERSHIP gathered that the decision to move against their continued stay as heads of the organisations has been prompted by their alleged complicity in the revelations of high-level fraud in the oil and gas sector of the country.
