The Kaduna refinery is to begin producing 2 million litres of petrol from today, April 27, 2016.

This was disclosed by Managing Director, Idi Mukhtar on Tuesday, April 26, during a meeting with the leadership of the Kaduna Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

"I want to announce that by tomorrow Wednesday, Kaduna refinery will begin operation with the release of two million litres of PMS in Kaduna. This will help reduce the hardship the citizens are facing due to fuel scarcity in the state,” he said according to Premium Times.

“Sustainability of the product is another issue Nigerians will want to hear. With available crude oil, we will be producing two million PMS per day. I can assure you that all hands are on deck to ensure supply. We also hope Nigerians will continue praying for it to be sustained,” he added.

Minister of Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu earlier said that the Port Harcourt and Warri refineries had resumed production.
