NUPENG backs FG’s plan to build second refinery in Northern Nigeria

​Benjamin Rotimi, the Vice-Chairman, South-West Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), on Wednesday commended the Federal Government on the proposed second refinery in the Northern part of the country, Premium Times reports.
On April 22, Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, told journalists in Bauchi State that the federal government planned to build a second refinery in the northern part of Nigeria. Mr. Kachikwu said plans to put the Kaduna refinery in better shape were also underway.
Mr. Rotimi said the plans of the government were laudable and would help in ensuring the availability of the product round the country especially with the discovery of oil in some states in the north. The union leader, however, urged the federal government to also think of building more refineries in other parts of the country.
