The Federal Government has been urged to fix the Refineries to stamp out unwholesome and unauthorized refining of crude oil in the nation.
A guest on “Politics Today” a Kapital FM current Affairs Programme, Garius Gololo made the call in Abuja.
Analyzing President Bola Tinubu’s National broadcast, Gololo stressed that the refineries would not only provide job opportunities for the teeming youths but also eradicate criminality in the country.
He expressed regret that President Tinubu has not shown much interest in revamping the nation’s refineries.
According to him, the President is applying wrong solutions in addressing the myriad of economic challenges facing the country.
Gololo questioned why the president and his team cannot invest in restoring the status of all refineries in the country to address the issue of subsidy removal.
He stressed that the speech of the president did not explain how Nigeria can come out of the persistent economic mess.
“Why won’t they just invest all the billions in fixing our refineries? The truth is that, until we fix the refineries, the price of fuel will be expensive since we are buying from the international market and the prices of other commodities will reflect as such.
“I will say on good authority that all the proposed palliatives will be in futility. Administrative experts will tell you that if you really want to solve any problem, you must attend to the root cause of the problem.Until then, the problem will continue”, Gololo stressed.
“The address of Mr President doesn’t contain the solutions to Nigeria’s current economic conditions and the problems, pains and hardship will definitely continue until Nigeria’s refineries are functional.”
On the ongoing NLC protest, he called for a peaceful protest and appealed to the Labour Congress to go back to the dialogue table to work out modalities to ameliorate the plight of Nigerians.
Gololo therefore called for the upward review of workers’ salaries to assist in reducing the plight of workers.
