Addressing minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who paid a working visit to the DPR headquarters, the director and chief executive officer of DPR, Sarki Auwalu assured that the flow of import would reverse when the new refineries come on stream in the next two years.
He said the feat would be achieved through the combined capacity of 375,000 barrels per day from 27 modular refineries, 650,000 barrels from the Dangote refinery and the 450,000 barrels from the government refineries.
