Hello, My fellow Nigerians, recently a Bayelsa industrial businessman, Dr. Azibapu Eruani has rekindled hope in Nigerians that the hydra-headed malaise of fuel scarcity and acute unemployment would be reduced to its barest minimum, if not eradicated as licensed privately owned refineries commences operation.
Eruani, President of the Azikel Group, conglomerate comprising Azikel Petroleum, Azikel Dredging, Azikel Power and Azikel Air said this while speaking with journalists in Yenagoa.
Decrying the yearly fuel scarcity debacle, particularly during festive periods in the country, he pointed that this challenge has become embarrassing and biting, as it has virtually crippled economic activities in the country.
The Azikel Group President averred that the present administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari took a pragmatic step to redress low supply, importation of fuel and price hike, by issuing licenses to privately own refineries to Nigerian businessmen, Azikel Group inclusive.
The Azikel Group President noted that subsidiaries under the group have created industrialization in Bayelsa and the Niger Delta, stressing that with over 1000 employees from the six geo-political zones and still counting, we have reduced unemployment challenge in the state, Niger Delta and in the country.
‘’We do not want Bayelsans, Niger Delta youths and Nigerians to be idle, we don’t want them to become illegal migrant begging for jobs and been lured into abominable social vices, such as prostitution and drug addict, cultist and robbery.
To this end, Eruani noted that an industrialised state and nation is the cardinal key to stable economic prosperity, which would in turn create institutions that would stamp out unemployment, even as he pointed that Azikel Group is on a mission to create the right values towards industrial growth, bring unemployment to its lowest ebb and promote financial freedom among all Nigerians.
I hope these will solve our fuel scarcity problem.
