The Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, has described the continued importation of petroleum products into Nigeria, despite the countryâ€™s being one of the largest producers of crude oil in the world, as shameful.
Obaseki said this on Sunday in Ewohimi, Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State, at the 10-year remembrance service of Chief Jeremiah Ighodalo, father of the Chairman of Sterling Bank Plc, Dr. Asue Ighodalo.
â€œThe continuous importation of fuel into the nation is a patriotic shame to Nigeria.
â€œAs one of the largest producers of crude oil in the African continent, Nigeria has no business importing fuel into the country. Itâ€™s a shame we are still importing fuelâ€
