Fuel Scarcity: Buhari Should Resign As Petroleum Minister – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as Minister of Petroleum over persistent fuel scarcity in the country.

Fayose made the call through his Special Assistant on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka on Friday.

“Already, fuel is being sold officially at between N180 and N200 at petrol stations across the country.

“It is sad that this Buhari’s APC government had to choose this Christmas and New Year period to ground Nigeria with the fuel scarcity that it deliberately orchestrated.

“It is obvious that the president has failed in all ramifications and he needs to do Nigerians a favour by relinquishing the portfolio of minister of petroleum.

“Like I said a few days ago, what the federal government is doing is to create scarcity so that Nigerians will be willing to buy at any price, provided the product is made available.

“It was to achieve this planned increment of petrol pump price that they restricted supply of petrol to NNPC alone,” Mr. Fayose said.

The governor noted that the only option to rescue Nigeria now “from being brought down completely is to vote out Buhari and his APC in 2019.”
