Over the past three decades since Petronas was set up, the national oil company has contributed RM426.6 billion to be exact, almost half a trillion ringgit to the government's coffers.
But where has all the money gone to? That's what former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad wants to know. Now after the truth reveal by Mahathir, each Malaysian eager to know what really happened to the big sum of money? In his latest blog posting, Mahathir said he is extremely interested to find out how the billions and billions of ringgit had been spent.
According to Mahathir, during his 22 years at the helm between 1981 and 2003, Petronas paid RM168.8 billion to the government. However, that figure jump dramatically in recent years due to the sharp hike in global oil prices. So Anwar was right that our nation is richer when the world fuel price rise.
