Is it A Crime For Govt To Build Or Own A Refinery? by Petenoir(m): 7:59am On Mar 26, 2022
I don't know if it's a crime or taboo or it is forbidden by the constitution for our government to either build, own, maintain or operate a refinery.
With the volume of crude oil at our disposal and the dependency on fuel by the citizens is it not common sense for a refinery to build to take care of the need of the people just like building fertilizer plants for farmers? What do I even know...
I don tire..

Check out the Gulf countries, they are reaping a windfall off this Russia-Ukrainean crisis because they have 101% functional refineries. What the Nigerian situation shows is that we are bereft of true leadership; this is also responsible for the comatose state of things beyond the oil sector. Let me also say that it has a nexus with the disdain of the green passport globally.

Before Buhari became the president, he promised he will build one refinery every year.
This is almost 7years of his government, we have not seen a single refinery built. Even the existing ones are not functional but they are consuming the country billions of Naira without producing a litre of petroleum products.
It well.
It's never a crime for the government to build refinery.

That's why we need Peter Obi to fix this mess. These people are so used to stealing from the masses that one wonders if they even have conscience at all. But then, it appears that Nigerians like suffering and smiling. So, nobody should complain.

I agree I know nothing about anambra state undecided
But his achievement should have been more audible.
Unlike tinibu (not his fan and definitely not getting my vote) whose achievement is very visible in Lagos

Pheww it took Nigeria almost 60, 62 years to discover they can refine their own oil right here in country. How many more years will it take for them to realize the huge mineral deposits laying idle in different parts of the country can be harnessed by putting the right structures in place undecided

We don't have visionary leaders if not all Niger delta States should have built modular refineries since it will generate more revenue than airport, flyovers and football stadiums that they're building.
