The House Representatives Committee on Crude Oil Swap yesterday invited the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Alison-Madueke to appear before it to “make clarifications” in the crude oil swap arrangement in which Nigeria lost billions of naira.

In a February 22  letter by the chairman Zakari Mohammed, the former minister is to appear next month to explain the product swap arrangements with oil marketing companies.
