Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has berated the Muhammadu Buhari-led government for planning to rehabilitate the Port Harcourt Refinery with $1.5bn.
Recall that the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timpire Sylva, had disclosed that the Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved his ministry’s plan to rehabilitate the refinery with $1.5bn.
But in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Friday, the former vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) described the planned repairs as a huge waste.
Obi faulted the approval of the money for the renovation, adding that the planned expenditure is worrisome to well-meaning Nigerians.
The former governor said approving such an amount for refinery repairs in light of Nigeria’s economic situation is a huge waste.
Obi accused the President and his team of worsening the country’s situation by their financial rascality.
Obi said, “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 on life support, but sadly the managers of our affairs are worsening the situation by their financial rascality.”
