Oshiomhole to FG: Handover refineries to competent private investors

Oshiomhole backs by Buhari & APC Governors, may emerge as next APC National Chair

Former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole has advised the Nigerian government to handover the refineries to competent private investors who would manage and run them effectively.  He believes this will help in solving the problem in the petroleum sector.

Oshiomole, also a former President, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) stated this at the 26th Convocation Lecture of the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), Ikorodu.

“Rather than to lament and agonize, what we need do is to organize and tackle those things that have brought us down as a nation.

“As Nigerians we must recognise the problems confronting the country so as to diagnose and prescribe solutions to fix them.

“The responsibility of leaders is so fix the country rather than join the citizens to lament”, NAN quoted him as saying.

He, however, hailed President Muhammadu Buhari on the war against corruption, saying it recorded remarkable results.

“The era of impunity of do it and nothing will happen is almost over in Nigeria; this is an era bringing every offender to book no matter their status”, he added.
