It’s Shameful Nigeria Still Imports Fuel - Obaseki (Updated: 1 month ago)


Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has called out the federal government, saying it is shameful that the country still imports fuel.

He said it is unacceptable that a country that is one of the largest producers of crude oil in the world still imports oil.  

Obaseki said this in Ewohimi, Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State, at the 10-year remembrance service of Chief Jeremiah Ighodalo, father of Chairman of Sterling Bank Plc, Dr. Asue Ighodalo.

He said; 

“The continuous importation of fuel into the nation is a patriotic shame to Nigeria.

“As one of the largest producers of crude oil in the African continent, Nigeria has no business importing fuel into the country. It’s a shame we are still importing fuel.

"As a nation, we should not be importing fuel at this point in our life. It’s a patriotic shame borrowing from the words of Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adiche.”
