    Still steadily observing to see the change this administration will bring, even as Baba continues his globetrotting exercise. Shebi Lagos is the next destination, to commission helicopters.

    Which way forward Nigeria ? The same thing for so many years .sometimes I wonder if we even have government in this country again ,it seems as if we Nigerians are on our own ,water dem no give we build borehole, road dem no give we do am for our estates, light dem no give we we buy our own gen and transformer ,now fuel again ,Na black market we go buy. After so many years Nigerians are getting tired of all these.we are really awaiting this change they speak of.

    Oil Marketers are the bane of our existence as a country. Government needs to give them one last payout, investigate them for corruption, find them guilty(before you complain, are you willing to bet at least 50% aren’t corrupt?) and find a new PMS importation system.

    Nigeria is the only country where Government keeps letting Private interests take them for ransom. Side-note, who are the people scared to criticise Buhari for dropping the ball so far? I’ll try to put it in plain words if Buhari f*cks!! up this four years, Nigeria will be well and truly f*cked!!. People will lose total faith in government and the democratic system can kiss itself goodbye as a form of economic empowerment for the people.

    Let your voices be heard, against all the elected officials, its our lives at stake!

    P.S people close to Oga Buhari, pull his ear and tell him to come back, Ruling Nigeria is not a dance you dance with your Utaba in one hand. Hope he learns lessons from Iran on how to govern a democracy with the proper application of force! Iran is one great country.

      Pure rubbish @Elessaris…… What the Government needs to do is get out of the importation business completely and let the marketers run it themselves. That’s how the PMS importation system all around the world works.

      Marketers should not always be the scape goats all the time. They’re bringing in this products via bank loans and run up interests, while still being owed subsidy. We can always just sit and say they’re corrupt, without even knowing how the process works.

      I disagree, while I believe refining should be liberalised albeit with tight regulation. I believe in Government control of PMS importation especially as a strategic resource in Nigeria. This is economic policy, experience has taught me the internet is the worst place to argue it.

      Let’s switch to the relatively less weighty topic of you believing oil importers are clean. How much are you willing to bet on 50% of them being spotless?

    what is most painful is that nobody is telling us anything. at least the past administration even pretented to care, we had Okonjo giving us updates and telling us by next week it will be over. Yet our able Minister of petroleum is jetting out constantly and nobody is asking him a thing.

    Waiting for amh, etc defence.
    PMB is working
    Fuel is N47 & its overflowing
    Jobs abounds
    Freezers are over working.
    I smiled when I read that PMB accused saboteurs for Light and fuel. Shortages. The truth is Buhari didn’t lie he will perform magic, Tinubu and APC did, they told us PMB is invincible. I will blame PMB cos he accepted to change the unchangeable.

    Over to you worshippers!

    Buhari didn’t make those promises but he was aware and said nothing. Who does that? Even with the whole change chanting? I guess Oga Jona will be smiling and hugging aunty Peshe right now. Where’s OBJ? Oh? Buhari is his new friend so he has nothing to say. Bunch of thieves

      Even oyibo man accepts that silence means consent. He was so hungry for power it did not matter if someone said he’d heal the blind. We all have to check our conscience and ensure that we are willing to tackle whatever task we are assigned overtly or otherwise. That is why oyibo man always says “point of clarification for the record.” The open and brazen deceit of the acutely deprived, disenfranchised and disempowered was the highlight of the campaign. It was an unfortunate mess that unravelled before us. But hey it brought votes. Those of us who were opportuned to have the right education could tell they were promising the largely “impossi-cant”. Anyway, there is a judge for all of this, and he is God or Allah. The rest of this story is in his hands.

    African leaders and their ineptitude coupled with their ravenous corruption just irks the hell out of me. Nigeria still a lil bit better than many other nations on the continent, yet still having a longgggggggg way to go. Then they wonder why the vast majority of ppl hold to the belief that black men cannot lead effectively.
