This was stated by the Chief Executive Officer of the refinery, Mr Chikezie Nwosu, at the closing ceremony of a technical skills acquisition programme for some graduates. He said the project is being undertaken with support from the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).

He said, “The industrial park is being developed with the support of the United Nation Industrial Development Organization and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa as part of Nigeria’s country program with the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment.”
