Kachikwu shared this view on Thursday in Abuja while making a submission to the National Assembly Joint Committees on Petroleum investigating the causes of the ongoing fuel scarcity across the country.

The minister said, “I have said that selling crude is a fairly wrong model which is akin to selling our agricultural products in the wrong way and nobody does that anywhere in the world anymore.

“Unless we have operational refineries, there will be no permanent solution to the fuel crisis in the country.”
