Reading Time: 2 minutes

Today, in the wake of the $1.5Billion Dollars assigned for the revamping of the New Port Harcourt Refinery_ a Refinery which as at the time it was proposed, it was approved alongside the Calabar Refinery in 1984.

For this reason, the Civilian Panel and Population Council of Citizens’ Solution Network has been foist to ask what happened to the 150,000bpsd Calabar Refinery proposed in 1984?

Why was it suspended after the Basic Engineering Design and Licensor Process Design packages have been completed as at the third quarter (Q3) of 1984?

For this reason, we seek to call on all network of activists and media heads from across the nation to restart the agitation for the construction of the 1984 proposed Calabar Refinery from the economic argument of job creation, energy security, revenue generation and commercial prosperity with access to predictive supplies for industries and manufacturing purposes, especially in a country that consumes about 750,000bpsd daily and needs additional installed capacity to meet local consumption.

In furtherance of this regional justice, activists and media heads must demand a Public Inquiry on the allocated fund for the Calabar Refinery Project with the objective of reclaiming it for its actualisation.
