Press statement from NNPC below…

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu has recommissioned the Escravos-Warri-Kaduna pipeline stressing that both Warri and Kaduna refineries are now receiving crude simultaneously for the first time in many years.

The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mallam Garba Deen Muhammad in a press statement quoted Dr. Kachikwu as saying that Warri has started working while Kaduna will start production at the end of the month.

The Minister noted that this means that for the first time in many years, all the three refineries and major crude pipelines will be working at the same time.

Dr. Kachikwu stated that Escravos terminal is the heart beat of the downstream sector of the industry and critical to local supply of finished petroleum product as both refineries in Warri and Kaduna are majorly fed from Escravos crude stock.

“The challenge of this country is the challenge of focus and stewardship. For the first time in many years the three refineries are going to be working and it will help in a great deal with the issue of fuel supply and distribution across the country and it will go a long way to manage the fuel crisis,’’ Dr. Kachikwu said.

He enjoined Nigerians to be more patient as the Corporation is working hard to end fuel shortage across the country.

“I appreciate the patients of Nigerians and I am committed and focused to make petrol available to all nooks and crannies of Nigeria,” the Minister reassured.

He’s the attached type and he’s there for Chyna. I prefer Rob.'”Rob and Chyna were just getting on so well. They spend every hour together so they’re already like a married couple. But she had never, ever mentioned the idea of marriage to me.”

“I said, ‘Is this an April Fool’s joke?’. I know she’s going to be super-famous when she’s married. Chyna was so happy.”When Rob got down on one knee in front of me and several other people, my eyes nearly popped out of my head and the tears started to come. Chyna cried too.

On pregnancy, she said
