It’s shameful Nigeria can’t refine its oil – Kachikwu

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, on Thursday described as shameful Nigeria’s inability to refine its crude oil.

He stated this during the investigative public hearing on the current scarcity of petrol in different parts of the country.

The minister vowed that the Federal Government would ultimately address the problem.

Meanwhile, there was a mild drama at the Thursday hearing as three persons claimed during the introductory session they were the National president of the Independent Marketers Petroleum Association of Nigeria (IPMAN)

The trio were – Sanusi Fari, Chinedu Okorokwo and Obasi Lawson.

However, the Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream) resolved that only the Executive Secretary of IPMAN, Aminu Abdulkadir‎, should speak for the association.
