The Federal government is set to stop the importation of fuel by 2019 with the approval of a new national oil policy by the Federal Exective Council.

This was revealed by the minister of state for petroleum, Mr Ibe Kachikwu in a chat with newsmen that the policy is geared towards re-organising the NNPC for greater efficiency and accountability.

This is a follow up to the national gas policy which was considered three weeks ago to ensure Nigeria moves from oil to a gas-producing nation.
