As a result, we are pleased to announce that the refinery will be rehabilitated in three stages. The first step, which will take 18 months to complete, will bring the refinery up to 90 percent of its nameplate size.


The second phase will take 24 months to complete, and the final stage will take 44 months to complete, with consultations accepted.

And this, I believe, is good news for Nigeria.”
