Though the wedding might be restricted to some select relatives and friends, a lavish reception has been organised in Hyderabad. The wedding in Goa will be an intimate affair with 150 guests consisting of family members and close friends in attendance.
"The Senate is concerned that this relationship has helped to greatly stifle the growth of indigenous companies operating in the sector".
"Aware that Duke Oil remains the sole importer of AGO to PPMC and Retail, which it does through third party, since it can not import by itself, this contributes in slowing the growth of our indigenous companies that are making giant strides in the sector".
"The Senate is further concerned that money so far earned by NNPC Trading Limited through its subsidiaries such as Duke Oil is not made public and is only known by NNPC officials", Anyanwu said.
Sani said, "President Buhari should disengage from being a Petroleum Minister and appoint a substantive minister whom the nation can hold accountable to the happenings in the nation oil industry".
