Nigeria gov't says has no plan to privatise refineries

Fri, 01/03/2014 - 08:23

By Felix Onuah ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has no plans to privatise the country's oil refineries, his spokesman said on Friday, contradicting a government pledge to do so last month. The Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) said late last month that Jonathan had approved a plan to sell the refineries, which have a combined capacity of 445,000 barrels per day (bpd), but run far below capacity due to decades of mismanagement in Africa's top oil producer. "The government has no plans to sell any of the nation's four refineries, so it's not true that Mr President approved the sale," presidential spokesman Reuben Abati said by telephone. Abati declined to say whether Jonathan had changed his mind or whether the BPE statement had been incorrect.
