Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello, has pleaded with the federal government to create a more job-friendly environment for Nigeria.

The Governor while fielding questions from journalists, said the present state of the refinery is responsible for many Nigerians being out of job.  Speaking further, The Governor stated that it was irresponsible to allow the downfall of Kaduna state refinery.

He said, “Kaduna refinery alone can give people job, and people will earn their living from it. Now if you go to Kaduna refinery, it is like a city of its own; I am not talking about activities but all those investments overtime we have irresponsibly allowed them to die.

“It is a shame that an oil-producing country will have to import fuel; it is a big shame I am highly disturbed and I am extremely angry about that, and it is quite frustrating.”

The Governor also called on the Federal Government to resuscitate moribund industries in Nigeria to tackle the menace of unemployment among youths in the country. The Governor insisted that resuscitating them would go a long way to reduce idleness and societal ills in parts of the Nation.
