Having Failed Severally, Buhari Govt Set January 2020 for Fixing Refineries

President Buhari

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says it will begin
full rehabilitation of the nations three refineries by January 2020.

The nation’s refineries are located in Port Harcourt, Warri and Kaduna.

The Group Managing Director (GMD) Malam Mele Kyari disclosed this on Saturday in Port Harcourt during a facility tour to the Port Harcourt refinery.

Kyari in a statement said, “We will stick to time, we will deliver this project by 2022. We will commence actual rehabilitation work in
January.

“We will do everything possible between October and December to closeout all necessary conditions for us to deliver on that project.

“I believe that with the support that we have from the shareholders –
the government of this country, the entire staff of this company and
the contractors, I believe it is doable and we will deliver the project.”

The NNPC GMD added, "It’s no longer about business now, but a
reputation issue. For the original builders of the refinery, Tecmmont,
Eni/NAOC and NNPC, let us be conscious of the fact that our reputation
is at stake as far as this project is concerned.

“The NNPC leadership has promised this country that our refineries
will work, therefore, we must work not to disappoint over 200 million
Nigerian stakeholders.”
