Nigeria has four refineries. They simply are not producing (albeit they are undoing a substantive rebuild ATM), probably because there's a lot of money (including rent-seeking) to be made from importation of petroleum products.

Furthermore, a Nigerian is building the world's biggest single-train refinery, which should be commissioned this year and should turn Nigeria from an importer of products to an exporter of same.

Meanwhile, in what appears ironic, Nigeria actually exports electricity to Togo, Burkina Faso, Benin Republic and Niger Republic, but that's probably to keep those nations from damming the River Niger.

Btw, Nigeria has more than enough educated citizens to whip the nation into ship shape. It is the innovation hub of Africa and its graduates are strewn across the globe, but suffers complex structural and institutional issues.
I know, I met a nigerian electric grids engineer. Nigerian but living in London and working there.

Q8. What is Nigeria doing to take advantage of the gas supply crisis in Europe? How fast do you think Nigeria will be in a position to fill in on some of the European demand?

A: We need long term partnership not inconsistency and contradiction on green energy policy from the UK and European Union. Investment is hampered by their broad-brush moratorium on overseas gas projects, while at home the same projects are classified as green. It does not help their energy security, it does not help Nigeria’s economy, and it does not help the environment. It is a hypocrisy that must end.

To change, the UK and EU countries should invest in our planned 4000 km pipeline to bring Nigerian gas – the largest reserves in Africa – via Morocco, then onto Europe.
