Nigeria, Namibia to Build Joint Oil Refinery
The Nigerian federal government and the Republic of Namibia have proposed to construct a joint oil refinery to maximise cooperation in the area of energy. The decision was reached during the two-day official visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to Namibia at the invitation of his counterpart, President Hifikepunye Pohamba.
This is contained in a joint release issued on the visit and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Windhoek, Namibia.
It stated that the refinery, which would be located in Walvis Bay, would be wholly private financed.
