Peter Obi describes $1.5 billion to renovate Port Harcourt refinery as waste

Peter Obi, the former Governor of Anambra State, has slammed the Federal Government of Nigeria for approving $1.5 billion to renovate the Port Harcourt refinery.

The former Governor, in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Friday, said it was a ‘huge waste,’ for the present administration to renovate the Port Harcourt refinery with such an amount of money.

Obi further stated that the Federal Government, which is supposed to manage the affairs of the country, is worsening the situation by their financial rascality.

According to him, “The news of the planned expenditure of a whopping $1.5 billion for Port Harcourt refinery repairs is worrisome to well-meaning Nigerians. In light of our precarious economic situation, it is a huge waste.

“Our country is on life support, but sadly, the managers of our affairs are worsening the situation by their financial rascality.”

The Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved 1.5 billion dollars rehabilitation of the Port Harcout Refinary in Rivers State.
