The Presidential candidate for the Labour Party, Peter Obi has called on the Federal Government to name and shame those involved in the theft of Nigeria’s crude oil for the sake of national Interest.

The former Anambra State Governor disclosed this in a social media statement on Wednesday.

Crude Oil theft has caused the Nigerian Government the inability to raise major foreign exchange earnings despite high crude prices in 2022.

Speaking on the matter, Obi said, “I am struck and intrigued by the news report linking “highly placed” Nigerians to oil theft. Same has been the case with financing insurgency and Boko Haram. When will FGN summon the political will to publicly name such persons?”

“In the National Interest, there should be no sacred cows,” Obi added.
