According to him, it is preferable that the refinery is sold to qualified investors.

“In 2019, PH Refinery contributed zero revenue, but incurred costs of N47bn; almost N4bn a month!, ” the tweet read.

“Instead of ending this nightmare through a #BPE core investor sale, NNPC wants to enmesh Nigeria into a deeper financial mess by throwing $1.5bn (incl. debt) at a problem it created?”
