"While the President was away, the law actually provides for those authorizations. So, I did grant two of them and those were presidential approvals, but they are specifically for financing joint ventures and they are loans, not contracts,” he said.
Earlier on Thursday, the Vice President’s spokesperson, Mr. Laolu Akande, had tweeted: “In response to media inquiries on the NNPC Joint Venture financing
arrangements, VP Osinbajo, as Acting President, approved the recommendations after due diligence and adherence to established procedures.”
This, he said was necessary to deal with the huge backlog of unpaid cash calls which the current administration inherited and to incentivize fresh investments in the oil and gas sector. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
