In line with the Buhari administration’s New Vision for the Niger Delta, the establishment of modular refineries in the region is already underway in the oil-rich region.
The Niger Delta New Vision is hinged on the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari administration to develop the region and ensure that the people of the region benefit maximally from the wealth of their land. The New Vision speaks to a progressive partnership among the federal government, state government, private sector and local communities.
“One of the nagging issues we were confronted with during my tour (of the Niger Delta) was how to deal with the proliferation of artisanal refinery and its attendant negative environmental impact. Our solution was to promote the establishment of modular refineries,” Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, said recently.
Following the approval of for the establishment of private-sector-led Modular Refineries across the Niger Delta region by the Federal Government, several modular refineries have now been now completed or undergoing construction.
