$1.5bn for Port Harcourt refinery repairs a waste, says Peter Obi


The Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has faulted the approval of $1.5 billion by the Federal Government for the renovation of the Port Harcourt refinery.

According to Obi, approving such an amount for refinery repairs in light of Nigeria’s economic situation is a huge waste.

He accused the leaders of worsening the country’s situation by their financial rascality.
