Buhari Set To Appoint Himself As Minister Of Petroleum

According to Buhari’s associate, the president would rather appoint himself than trust anyone else with the main source of Nigeria’s revenue.

A political associate of the president who spoke to Reuters said,

 “Nigeria’s oil sector is so dirty that nobody’s hands are clean enough to do the surgical changes needed”.

The new president has made it clear that he wants to change the country’s refining sector, which has declined since Nigeria became dependent on imported fuel.
