The Federal Government has set a 2023 deadline to stop the importation of petrol into the country.

The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation MELE KYARI, made the statement while signing the Condensate refinery strategy programme Front End Engineering Design.

He said the strategy is expected to deliver twenty million litres of Petrol when it’s completed.

KYARI explained that President MUHAMMADU BUHARI is concerned that as an oil-producing country, Nigeria is one of the highest importers of petrol in the world.

He listed strategies the corporation hopes to implement to achieve the deadline, including delivering on functional refineries, support to partners on projects that will make gasoline available in the country.
