In this unbelievable video from a Senate inquiry in July 2012, Nigeria’s finance minister and minister of the economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (NOI) stumbled to questions about a foreign Jp Morgan account the Nigerian National petroleum Corporation, NNPC used to collect revenue from oil. NOI responded clumsily that “she can imagine being involved in foreign sales of crude, they would have such an account, but she did not know the JP Morgan account.”
Nigeria’s government is embroiled in missing oil billions scandal to the tune of $20 billion. The NNPC stands accused of being an “ATM’ for the executives, and is also being investigated for continuing a kerosene subsidy scam through which N700,000,000, about $4.2 million is looted front he nations treasury every day.
