The Thread: 5 tweets that reveal what Nigerians really feel about this fuel scarcity

It’s Nigeria where we’ve completely acclimatized to promise and fail, so when fuel scarcity started at the beginning of December and the Federal government kept promising that there’s enough storage to last through Christmas, they’ll round up the culprits hoarding fuel and distribute PMS free of charge, and fuel scarcity will end in 48 hours (that was last week Thursday) we took it with a pinch of salt.

Also, since the drama began, we’ve heard Kachikwu, Lai Mohammed (who said there’s no fuel because it’s winter abroad) and NPMC speak about the issue but our dear Minister of Petroleum himself, Muhammadu Buhari has been silent, and we cannot fathom why. Having installed himself as the Minister of Petroleum Resources, it is puzzling why he chooses to maintain silence during this critical period. This is what has Twitter Nigeria angry. This attitude has typified his administration. Here’s a throwback tweet from the President, complaining about this issue. Yet in 2017, the status quo remains. And this President has the audacity to say he’s coming back in 2019. To do what, pray, tell?
