Nigeria’s Kaduna refinery has resumed production for the first time in four months.
The Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu had disclosed earlier in the week that two Nigerian refineries would begin operation before the end of the year.
Nigeria’s four refineries have all shut down since September, citing the need to make repairs to aid efficiency.
The resumption of operations at the Kaduna refinery, capable of refining 110,000 barrels per day is seen as a welcome development.
Nigeria is facing a severe petrol scarcity as the NNPC is accusing fuel station of hoarding supplies.
