    Before now, Kaduna refinery was a no-go area for journalists. Why? The answer is simple, the gigantic refinery had nothing to show off. It was hardly in operation but now, things have changed. The management of the Kaduna Refining & Petrochemical Company popularly called Kaduna refinery, admitted that they are no longer press shy. Why? The answer is in the article below as stated by the management of the refinery.
    A couple of weeks ago, some journalists were taken on a tour of the Kaduna refinery to see things for themselves. As we approached the refinery, scores of men and women and tankers were seen about 200 meters from the gate of the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company. “Who are these people and what do they want around here,” asked a journalist not familiar with the petroleum beat.
    “They are here for job opportunities. They are around to tap business opportunities,” replied an energy editor of a national newspaper.
    The journalists were received on behalf of the management of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) by the organisation’s spokesman, Dr. Levi Ajuonumah who proudly informed the guests that
    “All the Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units are working. Kaduna refinery is in business.” He said this was unlike what it was before the team of Engr. Funsho Kupolokun introduced Project Pace. This was confirmed by the managing director of the refinery, Engr. Voka Mukoro who spoke on production at the refinery.
