The Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed idris FCNA has pledged the support of the Treasury to the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority(NMDPRA) to help it succeed in its operations.

Idris said this when he received the management team of the Agency, led on a courtesy visit by the Executive Director (Finance and Account), Mr. Abiodun Adeniji.

The NMDPRA was created in September 2021 after the scrapping of three hitherto oil regulatory agencies – the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) and Petroleum Equalization Fund (PEF). The Agency is responsible for the technical and commercial regulation of the midstream and downstream operations in Nigeria.

Idris, who made a case for treasury officers to be co-opt as internal auditors in the Agency, pointed out that statutorily, treasury officers serve as internal auditors in all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), adding that such should be applicable in the agency.
