GHEN GHEN!!! Tinubu blasts Kachikwu over comment on lingering fuel scarcity

The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday berated the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu over his recent comment on the lingering fuel scarcity in the country.

Kachikwu while referring to the lingering fuel crises in the country, had recently claimed that he “was not a magician,” to turn things around almost immediately.

But reacting to Kachikwu’s comment, Tinubu in a ten paragraph statement titled: “KACHIKWU NEEDS TO KNOW THAT RESPECT AND GOOD PERFORMANCE WILL DO WHAT MAGIC CANNOT,” described the Minister’s comment as unbecoming of a “member of this progressive government.”

The former Governor of Lagos State who wondered why a public servant would talk down on those he was meant to serve, said, “Kachikwu’s flippancy was out-of-line. He was basically telling Nigerians that they should be lucky that they are getting the inadequate supply they now suffer and that they should just be quiet and endure the shortage for several weeks more”.

The statement reads, “I am confident that President Buhari and this government can resolve the issues that press us. From establishing full security and safety to staking a claim to true economic prosperity and fairness, this government shall salvage our national pride and purpose”.

“The art of governance is difficult and complex, especially during trying times. The steep reduction in global oil prices from over 100 dollars per barrel to roughly 40 presents a hard challenge. We can no longer afford past practices. Nigeria now requires creative reform, materially changing the substance of national economic policy as well as the objectives of that policy and how the policy is presented to the people. Therein lies the essence of progressive democratic governance.

“The Buhari administration represents the last best hope we have to install such governance in Nigeria and avert the catastrophe that would have befallen us had the prior government remained in place. Had the nation continued with the spendthrift corruption and vagabond economic policies of that administration, we would have soon experienced such a collision withthe harsh consequences of that government’s malign ways that our very institutions of government may have been distorted beyond fixture and repair.

“In this effort, there may be no economic matter more difficult to unravel andmore sensitive to the purse of the average person than the current fuel scarcity. Even here I am confident of progress because I know the commitment of the president to resolving this matter. I make no attempt to hide it. I am an avid and partisan supporter of this government and of the progressive policies of the party, the APC, upon which this government is based.

“With that I do reserve the right and the duty as a Nigerian to voice my opinion when I believe a member of this government has strayed from the progressive calling required of this administration. I do this because my greater devotion and love are for this nation and its people. Party and politicsfall secondary."
