Dangote Achieved What Buhari's APC-led Govt. Promised But Failed to Do -Dr. Austin Maho

The Editor-in-Chief of Daybreak Newspaper, Dr. Austin Maho, has expressed his concerns that Dangote, a private businessman, could achieve what has proved challenging for the Nigerian government to achieve. In his interview, Dr. Maho said that during Buhari's speech at the inauguration of the Dangote refinery, the president tried to take credit for something that should worry him.

Addressing the topic, Dr. Maho said, "The said refinery has its advantages, like wealth and job creation. It can also help with some of our power problems. However, the president's speech creates the impression that he wants to take credit for an issue that should raise concerns for him. During the eight years of his administration, Buhari and the APC failed to deliver on their promise to ensure that Nigeria's four refineries were working.

He added, "The president should be concerned that Dangote has achieved what the government could not achieve despite all its might. Over the last 25 years, Nigeria has spent nearly $25 billion on the turn-around maintenance of these refineries with nothing to show for it.
