Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers says the country’s oil and gas industry is characterised by high profile fraud.

Amaechi spoke on Monday in Port Harcourt at the commissioning of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) secretariat in Port Harcourt.

The governor who was represented by his deputy, Mr Tele Ikuru, said the ministers of God in the country should embark on fervent prayers on behalf of the nation for God’s intervention

He said the call for prayers was necessary on account of the high profile corruption confronting the country.

Amaechi, who is the chairman, Governors’ Forum of Nigeria, said some unpatriotic persons in Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) had sat down in Abuja and inflated the quantity of fuel imported into the country.

He argued that there was no how the country could have consumed the quantity of fuel the recorders claimed to have received on behalf of the federal government, stating that the recorders were members of PENGASSAN, even as he pointed out that the future of Nigeria was hinged on the union.
