The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed has disclosed that the Dangote Refinery will be selling fuel at international prices, adding that the refinery is set to begin operations from next year with a capacity of refining 650,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
She also said that shipping costs was the only thing Nigeria would not pay for but labour cost, landing costs and marketers will have to put a margin.
According to the Minister the whole plan was targeted at enabling the petroleum sector grow as they have been a number of refineries that have been licensed for several years. "None of them was willing to start refining under the regime that we had were fuel was controlled", she said.
