Adesina made this known why responding to questions on Channels Television’s Sunrise daily on Tuesday.

The Presidential aide attributed the fuel scarcity in the nation to the inability of Nigeria to produce the product locally due to the bad refineries.

“When you import fuel and do not produce fuel locally or the refineries do not work once in a while fuel scarcity should be expected, as long as you have those variables not under your total control you can’t rule that out.”

Adesina also explained that the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu has drawn up a timetable leading to 2019, adding that part of the plan is to make sure that Nigeria stops importing fuel in 2019.

On the latest report by the National Bureau of Statistics regarding the increase in the unemployment rate in the country, Adina attributed the cause to the recession and falls in the price of oil, assuring that the economy would start regaining its loss gradually.
