Falana: It Is A Shame Dangote Could Build Refinery But FG Couldn't by iwaeda: 8:26pm On Mar 15, 2021
Legal luminary and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Femi Falana has berated the federal government over its inability to build a functional refinery to address the lingering crisis in regulating fuel prices in the country.

Falana was reacting, in an interview with VanguardliveTV, to the recent botched hike in fuel price that saw the federal government debunking an earlier statement by the PPPRA announcing 212 naira as the new pump price of petrol.

Falana said it is a shame on the part of the Nigerian government that an individual like Dangote can build a refinery that refines 600 barrels of fuel per day and the government of Nigeria cannot even build four functional refineries to address the crisis of fuel in the country.

He said, “It is a shame that an individual like Dangote can build a refinery to refine 600 barrels of oil per day and the Nigerian govt cannot.

“PPPRA just woke up one morning and said they want to sell petrol for 212 naira and the president and no one knows about it? And no one has been fired.” The law only permits the petroleum minister to such within legal frameworks”

On whether market forces can determine the pump price of petroleum products,

Falana said, “Market forces exist in the imagination of imperialist as far as our laws are concerned there is no place for market forces determining prices of petrol.”

Falana also bemoans the approach of the government in tackling the activities of oil marketers in the country.

He stated that “This is an oil-producing country and on a yearly basis huge money is an earmark for fixing refineries. But instead of fixing refineries, the government imports fuel from other countries including from countries that don’t produce fuel.”

It is obvious that you did not comprehend the argument put forward by Chief Femi Falana.

Chief Femi Falana is right though. It is shame to the present and past government that none bothered to build at least a functional refinery.

But instead of fixing refineries, our government pre democracy and since 1999 imports fuel from other countries including from countries that don’t produce fuel.

There was a country!

It's a deliberate policy wickedness by the government.

The price of fuel is damn too high for an oil producing nation which in turn helped to skyrocket the price of other commodities

The country has gone to the dogs! Despite trying several times and having an abandoned one, it remains an impossible project for the country. Could it be a deliberate act to support his business just like they have been doing to power generation? It is well.

If only there was a word more powerful than "shameless"... The country is waiting for a refinery owned by a private individual. Meanwhile the project is being financed by the CBN. The CBN has the money to finance such a huge project for a private individual who is the richest man in Africa, but no money anywhere for the federal government to set up it's own. It's not as if the price of fuel will reduce once dangote's refinery starts operations.

Clueless and shameless government.

The government does not like its citizens. They are just there looking for every avenue to increase our suffering. They just don't care.

Read with an open mind. He isn't discrediting Dangote refinery here, he is only saying that FG with all the resources couldn't do what a businessman did. You're just looking for an avenue to attack falana but you failed, sorry!
