This, the GMD said was in a bid to check the activities of smugglers

NAN reports that Mr Kyari said this at 2022 to 2024 Medium-Term Expenditure Framework, MTEF, and Fiscal Strategy Paper, FSP, public hearing by the House of Representatives Committee on Finance.

He said that there was an ongoing initiative to put the electronic monitors on tanks and fuel stations that would monitor the distribution of fuel in the country.

He stated that with the electronic monitoring, every truck carrying fuel would be visible as they discharged their load and would see all the fuel stations as they discharged.

Mr Kyari said that the national fuel consumption per day may not be above 60 million liters as being speculated, adding however that anytime NNPC supply less than that, there would be a problem.

He also said that President Muhammadu Buhari had personally directed him to take steps that would curtail cross-border smuggling, while also admitting the challenges posed by land borders, aiding activities of smugglers.

The GMD said that those who took crude oil across the border would not sell at the official price.
