EFCC recovers N329b from 10 marketers

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has recovered N329.150billion from 10 marketers from 2016 to date.

The marketers defaulted in payment for products supplied to them by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) through its subsidiary, the Petroleum Products and Marketing Company (PPMC).

About N20, 604, 109, 123.90 is yet to be recovered.

The PPMC has written to the EFCC to help recover the funds.

Following a petition against the marketers, EFCC Acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu raised a special task force to investigate how the marketers incurred the debts of about N349, 818,411,556.37.

The Task Force, which was managed by the EFCC Zonal office in Kano, recovered the N329.150billion   from 10 marketers.

After the reconciliation at the weekend, the PPMC gave a status report to the Acting Chairman.

The report, signed by Umar Ajiya reads in part:  “Further to our previous correspondence to your office in respect of the above subject matter, please note that till date, the debts recovered from major oil marketers include N87, 028, 851, 268.17 and N242, 121, 256,468.03 for legacy and current debts respectively, leaving a balance of N20, 604, 109, 123.90 broken down into N4, 426,439, 240(legacy debts) and N16, 177,669, 883.90(current debts)

“These amounts have been agreed with the marketers that they shall be deducted and paid from outstanding entitlements or payments due to the marketers from the Federal Ministry of Finance and which will bring to the end the debt recovery effort.

We wish to express our profound gratitude for the successful collaboration between the EFCC and PPMC/ NNPC which largely resulted in the huge recovery of debt from the marketers from the inception of the recovery exercise in 2016 to date.”
