A former Governor of Edo State, Senator Adams Oshiomhole has recommended capital punishment for economic saboteurs attempting to frustrate the Dangote Refinery and push Nigerians into further hardship.

He made the call on Thursday in Abuja at the maiden Prof Emeka Umerah’s public lecture, with the theme, ‘Nigeria Yesterday, Today and a Prosperous Future’.

Oshiomhole representing Edo North also said that the Senate is seeking to review the contentions in Petroleum Industry Act (PIA).

Daily Trust reports that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has expressed frustration and difficulties being experienced by the Dangote Refinery, one of Africa’s largest oil plants, in securing local crude oil in the country.

“With all the funfair and celebration of Dangote Refinery that, for once, we now have a Nigerian who has initiated and built one of the world’s biggest refineries, Nigeria’s crude oil is still being exported while Dangote is denied some allocations.

“They prefer to import it to Europe and leave Dangote to import its crude from America into Nigeria. Those guys deserve to be hanged. If we don’t hang them, they will hang all of us. What it takes to hang them will require a president with extraordinary courage,” Oshiomhole said.

Former Director-General of Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Dr Sam Amadi, said no nation prospers when its people are pessimistic and don’t believe a good thing can come out of it.

The host, United States-based Professor of Medicine, Emeka Umerah, commended President Bola Tinubu for staying through to his vision amid opposition.

He said that it takes a courageous leader to carry out the ongoing reforms in the country knowing that it may bring people temporary pain.

“I must commend President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for his maverick style leadership over the past year. Leading Nigeria requires navigating complex challenges and making decisions that may not yield immediate results or compliments.

“As we celebrate these achievements, let us not forget that our work is far from over. We must continue to embolden the bold, to encourage the courageous, and to unite in our efforts to build a nation where every citizen has a fair chance at success, and where prosperity reaches every corner of our land,” Umerah said.
