Addressing newsmen in Abuja, National Chairman, HOSCON, Mr. Mike Emuh, said the group had met up with almost all the requirements for the award of the licenses, while its foreign financiers had provided evidence of funding for the refineries which are to be built in all the oil producing states in the country.
