The minority caucus in the House of representatives have rejected the $1.5bn approved for rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt refinery.

According to them it is outrageous and heavily inflated. The members are requesting a review of the cost.

The lawmakers noted that while they are in support of any genuine effort to bridge energy deficit in Nigeria such should not be used by corrupt individuals to fleece the nation.

“It is completely unexplainable that the sum of $1.5bn belonging to Nigerians is to be funneled towards the rehabilitation of a non-profitable refinery which has been slated to be handed over to private hands” said the lawmakers

The clashes in the south-eastern region of Salamat erupted between different ethnic groups on Wednesday night in the villages around the provincial capital of Am Timan, according to Salamat governor Abel Yamabaye Massira.

However, Buhari extended heartfelt condolences to President Idriss Deby Itno of Chad over the incident.

“I am shocked and saddened by the incident that shattered decades of relative peace and stability in Chad,” Buhari said.

He added that “ethnic and tribal clashes is a threat to African unity and stability and Nigeria joins the rest of Africa to deplore the latest eruption of violence in Chad.”

The president underscored the need for African leaders and people to manage their diversity with tolerance and understanding.

He noted that “a threat to stability in one part of Africa is a threat to the rest of us.”

According to Buhari “given Africa’s economic and social challenges, we cannot afford mutual destruction that makes our challenges more complicated.”

Meanwhile, President Buhari also commiserates with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the government and people of Egypt over the train accident in Northern Cairo that killed dozens of people and injured 98 others.
