Shettima: $25bn Spent On Fuel Importation Every Year by ijustdey: 5:02pm On May 24
Vice-President Kashim Shettima says over $25 billion is used to import petroleum products into the country every year.

Shettima spoke on Thursday at the Vanguard Economic Discourse themed ‘Reforms in the Era of Global Economic Uncertainties: Whither Nigeria’.

The vice-president, who was represented by Tope Fasua, special adviser on economic affairs, assured that this would change in the future.

The development comes five days after Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest person, said Nigeria will no longer need to import petrol by June.

Speaking at the event, Shettima said the country will stop importing the product due to the backing of the government and the revamping of state-owned refineries.

With the support our government is lending to our private sector-led oil refineries and rejuvenation of some of the state-owned facilities. The $25 billion we spend yearly importing petroleum and other refined products will soon be a thing of the past allowing the naira a much-deserved breath,” he said.

Shettima said the country will not hesitate to backtrack and review policies if it would impose undue hardship on Nigerians as it “has been seen over time”.

“So this administration is not out to make the life of Nigerians tougher, but to make the Nigerian economy sustainable, and the lives of our people more enjoyable,” Shettima said.

“Rest assured, ladies and gentlemen, that the next few years will be full of positive achievements. They include improvements in the standards of living, higher productivity, food security, bumper harvests and remarkable achievement with the guidance and grace of Almighty God.”

Speaking further, he said President Bola Tinubu has been able to secure more than $20 billion in potential investments into the country, “including $14 billion from India, $250 million from the Netherlands, and commitments of $500 million for lithium development in Nasarawa state”.

Shettima said the country has secured another $500 million from Germany into renewables, adding that the Siemens power sector projects will positively impact energy sufficiency in due course.

Nothing is unbelievable about Nigeria.

So, when will your regime make fuel price 87 Naira per litre?

The other day I said its politicians that keep spoiling the naira with their poorly economy policies. When you exchanged your naira to dollar with over billions dollars yet is not ending there what about cars and politicians foods most of this politicians don't eat local foods .

You built refineries yet is not working even the dangote still built his own with aims of shunning importing crude oil.

Mtchewwwww!!!
But it's binance that's making dollar gain over naira. Illiterates.

Just one year of governance and it's clear that these guys have absolutely nothing to offer. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Even Buhari, as clueless as he was, wasn't this clueless/hopeless.

The money will then be diverted and stolen by same crooks called politicians.

Politics in Nigeria is now full time business. Despite all they keep stealing, the end of it is they eventually die like chickens and forgotten forever.

Old men without brain jostling for power at their useless old age. The terrible aspect is they loot the Nation dry.

Nigerian politicians, you will people will keep dying untimely. Thieves!

Nigeria is full of clowns.

Our whole country is a circus.

Yet, the federal government refuse to sell crude to Dangote to refine locally


The man has to get crude in America for cheaper price.

Some people are benefiting from this that's why they've vowed not to make any refinery work in Nigeria.

shocked How did you arrived @ that Mr Shettima? Why are the refineries not working especially the PH own despite the heavy TAM on it? Looted of course.

The NNPC or Dept of Petroleum Resources( DPR) can't even provide an accurate data on daily fuel consumption in Nigeria yet the fuel subsidy corruption is still ongoing.

Same question i ask myself every now and then. The cost of building two solid refineries shouldn't be up to $50b. We know how much our top guys loot daily

Lol

This shiiiit-faced fuuuuckkker just comfortably used the term 'potential investments'🤣🤣🤣

Omo na to dey use this term at AGM, management meetings, and shareholder meetings o. Tell the boss(es) every month for a whole year about 'potential sales'. Tell them every month from January to December that even though you have not sold anything, you have potential sales that will swallow/fulfill your annual target/budget.

Promotion sure pa based on this coon's logic

The way we bandy figures this huge gives the criminals in power more impetus to steal. I can bet you more than half that amount ends up in the hands of politicians. 25billion dollars indeed.
