The House Representatives has yesterday said it would invite Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, to explain why the four refineries that were recently refurbished for operation are not currently producing, just six months after they became operational.
Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream), Mr. Joseph Akinlaja, stated this when members of the committee visited Matrix Energy Limited tank farm in Warri, Delta State, as part of inquiries into high prices and influx of adulterated kerosene leading to explosions in the country.

Akinlaja, who expressed the concern the House about high cost of kerosene in the market as well as incessant explosion due to adulteration, said they were visiting major industry players in the country to ascertain how the situation could be resolved.
He lamented the situation where Nigeria almost relies on imported petroleum products despite only recently upgrading the four refineries in the country , describing it as a national embarrassment.
He, therefore urged Nigerians to join hands to ensure that things in the country start working for the general good of the people.
