The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has called for necessary actions that would ensure regular supply and appropriate pricing of petroleum products, to ease the suffering of Nigerians.
Okowa made the call while commissioning an ultra-modern oil and gas filling station owned by North-West Petroleum and Gas Company Limited in Asaba, the state capital.
However, the governor observed that it was unacceptable that most Nigerians buy kerosene above the official price, yet the product was not readily available.
He stated that any action which would ease the suffering of the masses would be welcomed, especially in Delta state.
While expressing satisfaction that investors are having more confidence in establishing their business in the state, he urged them to consider the option of establishing modular refineries both in Delta state and the country at large.
He added that his administration was ready to facilitate acquisition of land for such investment.
