  • Petroleum tanker vessels discharging products at Nigerian sea ports are a constant reminder of the failings of the Nigerian government to get the midstream oil sector up and running.

  • Shipping fuel, rice, fish, salt, sugar! This is a sad story. What are we producing in this country? How can we develop when we depend on other nations to get everything in life. Our leaders should be ashamed of themselves. My heart bleed for this.
