ibe-kachikwu1.jpgThe Nigerian National Petroleum Commission (NNPC) has said that the Port Harcourt Refinery has been re-streamed and now producing between three and five million litres daily. This it said was aimed at alleviating the suffering Nigerians are facing as a result of the lingering fuel scarcity.

The General Manager of the Port Harcourt Refining Company, Bafred Audu Enjugu has said that the refinery will sustain its production to reduce the pressure on Nigeria’s foreign reserves.

The NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Garba Muhammad in a telephone interview with Vanguard, also said that the Kaduna and Warri refineries will begin production in a couple of weeks. “we have begun to supply crude to the refineries, but we are waiting to build up crude reserves before we fire them up in the next two weeks or so,” he said.

Muhammad also assured Nigerians that the fuel crisis will soon be over, saying that the problem has been largely resolved in Lagos and Abuja.

    I am most tired of their empty promises and stories. Nigerians are in dare difficult times. Total blackout on a daily basis. PMS is sold in Warri at 200-230 at Stations while black market is 300-350. Visionless Govt.

    Last year it was beginning production, another 3 months later it was beginning production again, today it is beginning production for the 3rd time. Confused beginnings. Still we hope.

    The entire situation is really disturbing and Nigerians are no longer sure of who or what to believe anymore. Why can’t we seem to get anything right, the giant of Africa? Na to dey talk big big oyibo. Our leaders, sorry to say, are deluding themselves and it is therefore no suprise that our progress has been one step forward five steps backwards
