UNDER THE AUSPICES OF CERTIFIED INSTITUTE OF PURCHASING AND SUPPLY ADMINISTRATORS OF NIGERIA I HAVE BEEN HELPING THE SITUATIONS IN THE OIL IDUSTRY. I AM THE LONE VOICE THAT HAS BEEN CRYIING OUT FOR ORDER IN THE OIL IDUSTRY. IN THE YEAR 2000 AND 2001 I ADVICED PRESIDENT OBASANJO TO CREATE FUEL SUPPLY DISTRIBUTION COMMISSION TO EASY AVAILIABILITY AND FLOW OF FUEL IN THE COUNTRY. HE LISTENED AND HIS ADMINISTRATION DID IT AND PUT CHIEF RASHEED GBADAMOSI AS THE HEAD. I ADVOCATED FOR THE INDEPENDENT MARKETERS OF FUEL TO BE ALLOWED TO HAVE TANK FARMS/DEPOT.HE LISTENED AND HIS ADMINISTRATION APPROVED OF IT. THE ACTUAL PROBLEM IS THEY TURN THE DISTIBUTION COMMISSION TO PPPRA IN 2003

DURING THE TENURE OF PRESIDENT YARDUA (WHEN OBASANJO LEFT)THE POWERFULL AUTORITIES IN THE OIL INDUSTRY RENEWED THEIR TACTICS BY CAUSING FUEL SCARCITY THROUGH KEEPING THE REFINERIES INACTIVE. I,DR.MUFUTAU ADEBOWALE CRIED OUT. SEE NIGERIAN TRIBUNE DECEMBER25,2007.THE GROUP MANAGING DORECTOR OF NNPC AT THAT TIME,ENGINEER YAARADUA LISTENED TO MY ADVICE AND AFTER 4 WEEKS ALL OUR REFINERIES BECAME ACTIVE.SEE TRIBUNE FEBRUARY 8,2008.
DURING THE TENURE OF PRESIDENT JONATHAN, THE POWERFUL PEOPLE IN THE OIL INDUSTRY STARTED THE SAME THING AND I WAS ALWAYS WRITING PRESIDENT JONATHAN, I WAS ALWAYS MAKING PRESS INTERVIES AND PRESIDENT JONATHAN WAS ALWAYS TAKING TO MY ADVICE TO CALL OUR LOCAL EXPERT TO FIX OUR REFINERIES. THE RESULT WAS ALWAYS FANTASTIC WITH AVAILIABILITY OF FUEL EVERY WHERE. SEVERAL TIMES THEY WERE ADVISING RESIDENT JONATHAN TO SELL THE REFINERIES.THANK GOD HE NEVER SOLD ANY REFINERIES.HE NEVER SOLD THE PETRO CHEMICAL PLANT.
IN APRIL LAST YEAR I SENT DETAILED ADVICE TO GENERAL BUHARI THROUGH HIS EMIR AND ALL REFINERIES STARTED WORK AFTER 8 DAY IN OFFICE.WHEN THEY STARTED THEIR MISGUIDED ADVICE I WROTE COMPRENSIVE LETTERS WITH FACTS AND FIGURES TO PRESIDENT BUARI TRHOUGH SECRETARY TO THE FEDERAL GOVERMENT, THROUGH THE CHIEF OF STAFF TO THE PRESIDENT ETC NOBODY REPLY NO AKNOWLEGEMENT LETTER AND NO SOLUTION. THE REAL POINT IS PRESIDENTS COME AND GO BUT THE POWERFUL AUTHORITY IN THE OIL INDUSTRY ARE CARRIER OFFICERS AND THEY STAY PUT TO ADVICE SUCCE3EDING PRESIDENTS TILL THEY ACHIEVE THEIR AIM OF SELLING OUR REFINERIES.THEIR LONG TERM OBJECTIVE IS TO MANIPULATE GOVERNMENT BUREACRACY TO FAVOUR SELLING OUR REFINERIES.
OUR REFINERIES ARE PERFECT AT ANY TIME. OUR LOCAL ENGINEERS AND TECHNICIANS ARE ABSOLUTELY CAPABLE. THEY UNDERSTAND THE PECULIARITIES OF THE TURN AROUND MAINTENANCE.WE DO NOT HAVE TO IMPORT FUEL AND THE ISSUE OF FUEL SUBSIDY WILL NOT ARISE. CRUDE OIL IS NATURALY ABUNDANT IN NIGERIA.IT IS GOD GIVEN. WHEN WE PRODUCE LOCALY , WE CAN SELL PETROL AT 30 NAIRA PER LITRE.
NIGERIANS ARE SAYING NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT PREVIOUSE PRESIDENTS .THEY CAN SAY ALOT WHEN PRESIDENT BUHARI COMPLETE HIS TENURE. OUR REAL PROBLEM ARE THE POWERFUL CARRIER OFFICERS IN THE CONTRY.(1)PRESIDENT BUHARI SHOUD CALL OUR LOCAL ENGINEERS TO HANDLE THE REFINERIED WITHING TWO WEEKS THE WHOLE PROBLEM WILL BE OVER (2) OUR PRESIDENT SHOULS APPOINT A SPECIAL ASSISSTANT ON REFINERIES MATTERS 08050407360, 07066399171
