President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to attend the Forum of China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) Summit holding from the 1st to 4th September, 2018 in the Chinese capital, Beijing. The AKK Project will be top on Mr. President’s agenda.

The NNPC had earlier clarified that the execution of the AKK gas pipeline project was progressing under the original concept of 100 percent contractor financing model contrary to some media reports of a possible resort to ‘’proceed of gas tariffs’’ as new means of funding because of purported collapse of negotiation with Chinese lenders.

The Corporation noted that the successful conclusion of the contractor financing terms would pave way for the historic ground-breaking ceremony which would take place after the conclusion of the front-end activities.
