President Muhammadu Buhari will flag off the $2.8billion Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano natural gas pipeline project by 30th, June 2020.
The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva stated this on Tuesday at a partially virtual event in Abuja.
He said: “Without appropriate pricing, we cannot have it right. We have to ensure that gas becomes affordable. That is the only way our country can strive. It is sad to note that we sell gas cheaply to investors while the price is high in the domestic sector to the extent that some Nigerians say diesel is cheaper than gas.
“Once we solve the issue of gas in Nigeria we would have solved a lot of problems in Nigeria. Luckily for us, gas is something we have in abundance.”
