According to the statement by the senior personal assistant on media and publicity to the president, Garba Shehu, in meeting with delegations of revenue mobilization, expressed great disappointment with the way the nation’s oil industry is run since he left office as oil minister and head of state in 1985.
Identifying that past leader, dating back to Ibrahim Babangida to his predecessor Dr. Good luck Jonathan, allowed the nations four refineries to remain unproductive for their cronies to import oil produce and pay billions of naira in subsidizing the importation at the expense of the nation economy and peoples detriment.
And now I think…
But “Thank God”, Jonathan has laid the ground for change on revenue generation increase and for possible reduction in subsidizing oil produce by repairing the refineries.
Now put them into good use and stop those past leader cronies from importing oil produce and you as government, from having to subsidize petroleum produce.
And finally, keep the refinery working and possibly, build another one, not forgetting that Dangote and Fashola are already building one… Whatever or whoever their business interests are or represent, doesn’t matter, i believe you know, provided you legislate a control that will keep it in check, to work for Nigerians and not against our economy and peoples interests….. And get to work.
