He said, “We had a bit of delay but PMS will start coming out by 10th, 15th of July but then we want to keep in the tank to make it to settles. By third week of July, we will be able to sell it in the market.”

On his part, Akpabio referred to the refinery as the 9th wonder of the world, commended the Africa’s richest man for the refinery project.
