Ben Murray-Bruce on fuel scarcity
The past few days have seen a scarcity of petroleum cripple Nigerians and their various businesses, and Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has offered a solution to the current crisis.
According to the Silverbird Group boss, the country would be better off legalizing and developing illegal refineries than shutting them down.
“We have excruciating #fuelscarcity yet we are destroying illegal refineries producing what we lack. Where’s the #Commonsense in that?,” Murray-Bruce wrote on his Twitter account.
“Is it not better to legalize and register the refineries to bring them up to standard rather than depend on imports?”
He added: “If we legalize and register illegal refineries, we may immediately increase our refining capacity by 20%.”
