SHAME On Those Responsible For The Fuel Crisis In Nigeria


Shame on the Nigerian government

Shame on the Nigerian government for not providing adequate refineries in Nigeria.
Why can’t every state in Nigeria have a refinery?

Why after all these years is Nigeria still importing refined fuel?

Why after all these years is the price of fuel increasing in Nigeria, even though the amount of oil barrels produced everyday has more-than doubled in the past 10 years.

Shame on the Nigerian government for not being able to attack the corruption in the Nigeria oil sector.

You must be feeling satisfied of how the fuel crisis terribly affected Nigerians.

At least, there is no better way to remind Nigerians and the Nigerian government how important you are to the country, right?

You went on strike because the Nigerian government owes you $1 Billion.

However, have you considered the fact that you’ve caused Nigerians to lose more than $1 billion because of the fuel crisis?

Doubt that? Well, do the math after reading this article.

You made the lives of Nigerians that is already hard to be even harder, and there’s a price on that.

Whether you like it or not, your actions must have indirectly or directly caused Nigerians to die, and there’s a price on that.

In fact, I’d bet my last $1 on that.

In US for example, the value of Human life is placed at more than $9 million…

You made Kerosene, Gasoline, cooking gas, etc., which are very important commodities for Nigerians scarce…

This lead to outrageous price hikes for these commodities.

A litre of fuel went as high as 500 Naira per litre…

…it’s just sad to hear something like this in a top 15 oil producing country.

12 kilos of gas that is normally sold below 2800 Naira went above 6000 Naira.

Many Nigerians couldn’t afford to buy cooking gas or kerosene. There wasn’t even power supply in most places for days, nor was the price of fuel cheap, so some went hungry.

You probably think your decision would affect the present government, well, I doubt that.

Most of our so-called leaders don’t care about the average Nigerian.

They are supposed to be there to serve us—the masses— but they rather serve their selfish interests…

However, it’s not right to make Nigerians suffer for their action.

Repercussion of your action

Think about all the business that couldn’t function during the strike.

…and the money has been lost due to this.

Think about how the fuel crisis you caused greatly affected the already weak power sector.

“The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Power, Godknows Igali, had on Friday reported that power generation nationwide had dropped from 4,800MW to 1,327MW, leading to the massive load shedding ongoing across the country.”— PremiumTimesNg

Think about the money people spent in buying fuel at outrageous prices.

Think about the negative way you’ve made Nigeria look to the international public.

Think about the time millions of Nigerians spent sitting idle because of your decision.

You decision increased transport fairs by more-than 100% in Lagos state for example.

In fact, it stalled economic activity in the country…

…even my family lost more than $200 and that pisses me off.

Life in Nigeria is hard, but your actions made it worst.

Make going on strike your last option next time

You should consider suing the Nigerian government next time…

Going on a strike should always be your LAST option, because it greatly affects the people…

…and the Nigerian government doesn’t really care about the average Nigerian.

Well, except change occurs with APC–I want to believe in this possibility eventhough I see APC to be equal to PDP.
