NNPC Crisis: Ex-Oil Minister David-West Aims Dig At Kachikwu, Calls Him ‘Minister Without Portfolio.’

The Former Minister of Petroleum, , Professor Tam David-West, has said that President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) never said he would reduce the pump price of fuel to N40 per litre as earlier purported.

While speaking to Vanguard, Prof. Tam David-West, who is a Professor of Virology, revealed that N40 per litre was his own preferred pump fuel price and should not have been attributed to Buhari.

He said: “I wish to correct a wrong impression carried in the newspapers, entitled, “Buhari’ll reduce petrol to N40-David West.” I did not make such categorical statement and I’m sure that Gen. Buhari will agree with me that I could not have made such a categorical statement.

“Gen. Buhari and I have said it times without number that the phenomenon called subsidy is fraudulent. N40 per litre is my own figure which I have repeatedly used in all my write-ups and interviews.”
