Lawyer Sues Buhari Over Lack Of Petroleum Products

A lawyer and rights activist, Kabir Akingbolu has dragged
President Muhammadu Buhari before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos over
his failure to make adequate provision for the production and supply of
petroleum products to all citizens at regulated prices.
Akingbolu, in the suit, has the Attorney General of the
Federation, AGF, as the second defendant.
The lawyer is contending that considering the nature and
extent of inconveniences which the citizens of the country were being subjected
to by the lack of petroleum products, especially the Premium Motor Spirit
(PMS), the failure of Buhari, as the Chief Executive Officer of the country, to
act by making the products sufficiently available, was capable of causing
breach of peace and serious discomfiture for the citizenry.

He is praying the court to determine whether the failure of
the president to address the scarcity by the President was a breach of the oath
of office he took on May 29, 2015 and a violation of the clear and unambiguous
provisions of Section 130 (1) & (2) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.
Akingbolu is asking the court to declare that the failure of
the defendants (Buhari and AGF) to make available petroleum products as a
breach of oath of office, and that the failure to fix the refineries in the
country was equally a breach of the constitutional obligation of the president.
