General Electric (GE) has said that it would be assisting the Federal Government in the revitalisation of the country’s ailing refineries, The Guardian reports.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of GE’s Grid Solutions/Energy Connections, Africa, Dr. Lazarus Angbazo, told journalists in Lagos recently, that the company is still waiting for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on the areas in which its intervention is required in the revitalisation of the country’s ailing refineries.

Angbazo said that the resuscitation of the refineries would enable Nigeria become self-sufficient in petroleum production, adding that the company would not hesitate in helping the country to meet the 2019 target to halt importation of petroleum products.
