I’ve been stubborn; insisting I’ll not buy fuel from the black market. None in the filling stations around me. The heat is killing. No light. I just bought 5 gallons at N1,000 each. That is N250 per liter. That is also N5,000. If I do this 7 times only in a month, that will be N35,000, just to power my generator. And that will be conservative estimation. For a poor man that I’m that is economic suicide.
So, this is what I think;
(1) Baba should sack whoever is his minister of petroleum, and promote the assistant (state) minister. Oh! It is Baba himself? Then he should fire himself and face other issues he can and is doing very well at. Fire himself!
(2) Baba should sack or demote the minister of power. After ripping us up by jacking up the electricity tariff there is still no light. I paid N8,000 and was given only 288 units. In my house, this will not last more than 2 weeks. Fire somebody!
(3) Baba has my full support to travel out of this country, to wherever he wants. That way, international journalists can help me (may be you too) ask him what is the problem with power and petrol, and he is doing to solve it. We need to know what is happening. Just travel. Even it is to Chad.
Okay, just so know, if you come here to justify the unjustifiable, with the oft-used justifiers of “impatience” or “saboteurs” or “GEJ too…” you have added yourself to my list of clowns. Those are problems presidents should expect and for which they were elected to tackle. If we didn’t buy such nonsense from Dr. GEJ’s supporters, you can’t sell same to us now. Shikenan!
