Sylva stated this while reacting to the controversy tailing the approval of $1.5b for the rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt refinery by the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
During an interview on Channels TV programme on Sunday, the minister said he should be held accountable “for every dollar, every cent” spent on the refinery.
The minister said President Muhammadu Buhari wants to leave behind a legacy of functional refineries for Nigerians.
“They (Nigerians) can hold me accountable and hold this government accountable for every dollar, every cent on this refinery and ensure that we deliver a refinery that works,” he said.
“What President Muhammadu Buhari wants to leave as a legacy are refineries that are functional.
“That is really where we are looking at because what is going to happen to those refineries will be decided by Nigerians and future administration.”
Meanwhile, the Federal Government has revealed that Dangote Refinery will be selling its products at the international price, when it kicks off next year.
