Buhari made this disclosure in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina on Wednesday.

He said the President’s announcement was in fulfillment of an earlier pledge by his administration to publicly declare the financial position of the NNPC.

“I am pleased to announce the declaration of Profit after Tax of Two Hundred and Eighty-Seven Billion Naira (N287 Billion) in Year 2020 by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation,” he said.

“This development is consistent with this administration’s commitment to ensuring prudent management of resources and maximization of value for the Nigerian people from their natural resources.”
