Reno Omokri, a contentious former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, has criticized several Nigerians who have been moaning about the increase in fuel prices as a result of the elimination of the fuel subsidy.
Reno claimed that the same people who griped about the present fuel price during President Bola Tinubu’s administration and the former president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s handling of the foreign debt do not comprehend the relationship between action and effect.
The political expert argued that it was impossible to have it both ways and added that the continuation of the fuel subsidy was the goal of the loans from other governments.
He wrote: “You demonstrate that you are immature and do not comprehend the causal relationship between action and consequences when you complain that our foreign debt exploded under Buhari and you are now outraged that fuel prices have increased under Tinubu.
You cannot have it both ways, she said. We borrowed a lot of money to pay for fuel subsidies. You MUST accept the new fuel costs if you don’t want an unmanageable debt that neither our children nor ourselves can repay.
Nigeria MUST eliminate partisan politics from the production of electricity, gasoline, and the Ajaokuta Steel Company. Because without addressing those three issues, we will never develop to the fullest extent possible.
“I am aware that Tunde Bakare, Tinubu, Buhari, and others did it to us. But I’m not out for vengeance. I’m here to save people. It is preferable to have an adequate debt load than an appropriate fuel price.
“If you don’t like it, go to Peter Obi’s Next Supermarket, get an energy drink, then walk with that energy. Simple!”
