ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria’s oil production has risen to 2.2 million barrels a day (bpd), Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun said on Thursday, after a fall in attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta.

“We now do 2.2 million bpd production,” Adeosun said.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said on January 17 that oil output was between 1.7 million and 1.8 million bpd.
