The Labour party presidential candidate has finally reacted to the recent built refinery commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari and some country’ s elites.
You should know that the richest Business man in Africa, Aliko Dangote just built a refinery in Lagos state for a positive impact on Nigeria oil industry.
The development has made many invited people like, President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate president, Ahmad Lawan, CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele and some other elites to visit and commissioned the refinery.
Peter Obi who was also invited has revealed his view concerning the newly built refinery which is to make Nigeria oil issues come to an end.
In a video uploaded on his verified Twitter page, Peter Obi was seen beside Aliko Dangote when both were exchanging greetings.
Peter Obi while reacting to the development said the newly built refinery will favour small and large businesses as it will boost the country’ s economy.
Peter Obi said: ” Today, I honoured the invitation to the Commissioning of the Dangote Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemicals in Lagos. This is the World’ s Largest Single Train Petroleum Refinery.
” I congratulate Alhaji Aliko Dangote for this world- class project which I believe will be very beneficial to Nigeria’ s economy. The refinery with a capacity of 650, 000 barrels of crude oil per day when operated maximally, is expected to meet Nigeria’ s domestic demand for petroleum products and help Nigeria to save the much- needed foreign exchange currently spent on the importation of such products.
” By supplying the surplus to the International markets, Nigeria will reposition itself as a key player in the downstream petroleum sector of the global market. In moving Nigeria from consumption to production. I have always argued for greater private sector participation in the economy as exemplified by the Dangote Group. I believe the Dangote Refinery will be very beneficial to the nation’ s economy.
” By moving Nigeria from a net importer to a net exporter of petroleum products, this refinery will create numerous jobs and generate needed foreign exchange inflow. ”
