HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO INVESTIGATE 1.5-BILLION-DOLLAR PORT HARCOURT REFINERY REHABILITATION COST
Written by wave FM on March 24, 2021
The House of Representatives has mandated its committee on Petroleum Resources Downstream to organise an investigative hearing to ascertain the true state of the Port Harcourt refinery which the Federal Government has approved 1.5-billion-dollar for the rehabilitation.
The House also mandated the committee to carry out a comprehensive audit of funds previously spent on the Port Harcourt refinery and other refineries across the country.
This decision follows a motion moved as a matter of public importance by Representative ONOFIOK LUKE.
The lawmakers expressed worry that so much had been spent on maintaining and rehabilitating the refineries but the outputs have barely improved.
