El-rufai: Cameroon Shut Down Its Refinery Because Of Cheap Fuel From Nigeria by ManirBK: 8:20am On Nov 25
Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State has said the current fuel subsidy regime is not beneficial to Nigerians.

According to the governor, the monthly subsidy payments which cost the country over N250 billion is only to the benefit of neighbouring countries.

El-Rufai also said one of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries, Cameroon shutdown its refinery because of the cheap fuel they are getting from Nigeria.

The governor spoke at the launch of the World Bank Nigeria Development Update (NDU).

“The fuel that matters to Nigerian is kerosene, it has been deregulated and the world has not collapsed. The fuel that is important to industry and transporters is diesel and it has been deregulated — nothing has happened,” el-Rufai said.

“So this hullabaloo about petrol is just something we must as a country have a conversation and agreed that it has to end, we can not continue to provide petroleum gasoline to our neighbouring country, which is what we are doing.”

According to the governor, the major beneficiaries of fuel subsidy in Nigeria are smugglers, neighbouring Africa countries, and some rich people in Nigeria.

“This month, the NNPC brought only N14 billion to the federation account. In the budget, they are meant to bring in N120 billion monthly, but they brought 14 billion with the threat that they will ask the federation account to give them a cheque to cover subsidy.”

“Who is befitting for the subsidising other than the smugglers, neighbouring Africa countries, and some rich people?”

“We should stop politicising these things that will bring Nigeria to its knees”

On the move to replace fuel subsidy with a N5,000 transport grant for 40 million Nigerians, the governor said it’s a welcome development as the state governors are in full support.

“The Nigerian Governor Forum has met and agreed to support the federal government, withdraw this subsidy by February, and use the N250 billion per month that would have been lost between February and May to do these conditional cash transfers that would put money in the pocket of Nigerians,” he said.

“To ameliorate not only cost of transportation but also the 2 to 3 percent jump in inflation that is expected when the subsidy is removed.”

Total fuel subsidy removal is a Good thing.
But Elrufai and buhari where Critically against Goodluck Jonathan on total fuel subsidy removal in 2011, and their people agreed with them then. What Change?

El-Rufai also said one of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries, Cameroon shutdown its refinery because of the cheap fuel they are getting
from Nigeria.

But it was the same El-Rufai that protested for almost a week in Abuja when GEJ removed subsidy some years back.

Does it mean Malam has changed his view on subsidy or he did that to discredit Jonathan's government ?

Please how do they get this petrol that has made them shut down their refineries?

What volume do they get from Nigeria that is sufficient to run their economy?

It will be interesting to know where the mallam got his information.

Available information shows that the SONARA refinery shutdown in June 2019 due to a fire incident and it seems they havent reactivated it just yet but have plans to do so, and also build a new refinery as well.

It would be astonsihing for a country to shut down its refinery because of reliance on smuggled fuel from Nigeria.

Mr Rufai, Improve the security situation in Kaduna, talk to your parrot like son and stop taking drugs. Makes you hallucinate every time when you talk.

Eventually, the souls that were murdered in cold blood in KD will haunt you the rest of your life!
