Buhari under fire for apologizing to Nigerians over Fuel scarcity

Reno Omokri, a socio-political activist, has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for apologizing to Nigerians amid the ongoing lack of petrol and power supply in the country.

CDA News reports that President Buhari, who is the Minister of Petroleum, is currently in the United Kingdom, while the country battles fuel scarcity and nationwide blackout due to the collapse of the national grid.

The President had on Wednesday apologized and expressed sincere regrets for the inconvenience caused to citizens of the country following a prolonged shortage of petroleum products.

His apology was contained in a statement released by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

Reacting, Omokri, in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Thursday, claimed that out of greed, the President appointed himself Petroleum minister.

He tweeted: “The best apology Buhari can give over this crippling fuel scarcity is not a Facebook post, rather it is for him to return home and fix the problem.

Out of greed and lack of trust, he appointed himself oil minister. Buhari can’t minister our fuel needs from London!”
