The solution is simply to legalise the so-called illegal refineries by:
- Reducing to the barest minimum he financial requirements for licencing.
- Regulating them to prevent environmental pollution as much as possible.
- Taxing them so that Government can benefit from their business operations.
We urge the Buhari Administration to resist all pressure not to legalise these operations which are mainly located in the Niger Delta.
APC promised N40 per litre. It is very possible, if they can follow the above guidelines.
If Buhari does this, he will put smiles in the faces of millions of Nigerians. 2019 would be a walkover.
