Wednesday, July 24, 2019

NNPC said it will divert 10% of its crude oil production to India to aid the country in resolving its energy crisis. Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Mele Kyari, said Nigeria will continue to support India’s energy security challenge in whatever way it can.

The NNPC spokesperson, Ndu Ughamadu, said in a statement that Kyari stated this during the visit of the Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Abhay Thakur, to the NNPC headquarters in Abuja.

According to Ughamadu, Kyari said the recent MoU in energy security between Nigeria and India would further strengthen the bilateral relations between the two countries.

“We are ready to have robust engagement with the Indian trade team to Nigeria, to provide a win-win energy scenario. Every trade opportunity that is available will be fully explored,” Kyari said.
